Title Prussian waist belt clasp, other ranks
Nationality German
Period c 1916-18
Sold

This die-struck steel buckle would have been worn throughout the Prussian army in the latter years of the war, replacing the traditional 1895 pattern Prussian army other ranks buckle, brass with a nickel silver centrepiece. It has most of its original field grey wash (applied to both sides).

It is stamped 'OEL' to the reverse, which may stand for 'Offenberg - Engels & Co, Ludenscheid'. The size of the lettering (larger than normal) may indicate post-war ownership by this factory for use on a display board or as a sample.
