You are bidding on a SUPERB and 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Luftwaffe EM/NCO Belt Buckle and Belt!
Military belts and buckles date back hundreds of years, and were originally designed for attaching swords and daggers. Fist introduced in 1935, the Luftwaffe Belt and Buckle underwent minor modifications. In 1937, it received a new pattern eagle and then again in 1940 with a slight difference of construction.
Made of a stamped steel, this 1940 pattern buckle is in SUPERB used condition, and it retains 95% of it’s original finish! It has a full second pattern Luftwaffe Eagle, and the stamping is quite deep. There is some slight dirt and very minor traces of wear, but it could easily be cleaned up if needed. Buckle is dated 1940, with an N&H Manufacture Code.
The leather belt remains in EXCELLENT condition, but does have some slight marks and wear. Made by Assmann, it has 2 red ink store stamps and is a LARGE size indicating 120cm. The manufacture stamp is legible and has a 1938 date.
Brought back by a US Veteran, it is VERY RARE in this condition, it would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!
