OUTSTANDING WWII German NSDAP (NAZI PARTY) POLITICAL LEADER’S BELT BUCKLE. (Koppelschloß) With RZM Tag Brought Home By A U.S. Solider 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, gold-washed aluminum 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 “M4/72” for maker Wilhelm Deumer of Lüdenscheid. It still had the original paper maker’s RZM tag attached! Brought home by a U.S. 7th Armored Soldier.
