Original WWII Era German Political Leader’s Belt Buckle Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The circular Political Leader’s buckle was introduced in 1940, a double open-claw buckle having been used prior to that and, prior to 1934, the SA buckle. A stamped, silver zinc alloy belt buckle features a spread-winged eagle with a wreathed, mobile swastika in its talons. Encircling the eagle is a wreath of oak leaves, which the eagle’s wings extend into. To its solid, concave reverse is a buckle catch, opposite of which is crimped a keeper in the form of an open, vertical rectangle. Seen from the obverse, the inner bar of the keeper is decorated with an oak leaf motif. Embossed above the catch and crimped keeper to the reverse is an RZM, “Reichszeugmeisterei” (National-materiel-control-office), logo, alongside of which is “M4/77” for maker Gebruder Gloverfeild in Ludenscheid. This is an unusual variant in silver (scarce) some light storage wear. Superb, untouched example. Brought home by a U.S. Veteran part of a large hoard of items we recently obtained. A fantastic piece of WWII history. Nice WWII period eagle buckle captured by an Allied Veteran and brought home as a war trophy. 100% Guaranteed to be authentic. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History.
