Title Weimar armed forces waist belt clasp, other ranks
Nationality German
Period c 1925-36
Price £70.00

This relatively uncommon die-struck steel example has a blue-grey finish to the front, suggesting possible navy use, with a field-grey finish to the reverse. A nickel version of this buckle (for parade and walking out) is occasionally found with a field-grey finish.

This design replaced the old Prussian one circa 1925 and was widely used by the navy as a combat buckle, their parade version being in brass.

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.
