Title Heer officer's dress belt and buckle (Assmann), 1937 pattern
Nationality German
Period c 1937-45
Price £250.00

This full dress bright aluminium brocade belt (size 80cm) with its buckle would have been worn with parade dress and on various other formal occasions. The buckle is marked on the hook 'A' for Assmann & Co. Bandmasters had two red stripes running through the braid and generals wore them in gold bullion with a gilt buckle.

There was a field version of this belt in brown leather with the same buckle; sometimes the buckle was painted green. There was also a DAK version in webbing, with a sand-coloured buckle.

The condition is excellent throughout, with some minor wear to the brocade in places from the piece being folded by collectors over the years. Other than this, it is virtually ex-tailor's shop.

testimonials

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
