Very Early 1930’s Original German Army (Heer) Parade Belt Buckle Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. A new pattern EM/NCO’s belt buckle was officially introduced to replace the previously worn Weimar era Reichsheer buckle. The basic design of the Reichsheer buckle was retained with the addition of the new Wehrmacht style national eagle. This pattern buckle was worn through-out the Third Reich period with minor manufacturing variations and different colored finishes. The colored finish was determined by regulations depending on what form of uniform it was to be worn with. Early, (circa 1936-1940), two piece molded construction, natural aluminum box buckle with a pebbled background field and a slightly domed, embossed central motif. The central motif features an embossed Wehrmacht style eagle with down swept wings on a subtly pebbled field to the center, encompassed by an embossed oak-leaf cluster to the bottom and script, “Gott Mit Uns”, (God with Us), to the top. The oak-leaf cluster and script are on a ribbed background field and are encircled by both an inner and outer simulated twisted rope border. Nice example issued with expected wear, has a small push in the eagle (see photo). U.S. Veteran bring-back condition. Gettysburg Museum Certified (COA) provided. Rare 100% Guaranteed to be authentic pre-1945. Sold for historic purposes only. See our other pieces on our web site.
