A tabbed one! It is constructed of a single piece of die struck steel that has been green painted. The obverse roundel depicts a closed winged Heer eagle griping a mobile swastika in its talons on a smooth round background. The eagle is above a half oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the bottom and is underneath the Heer motto reading: “Gott Mit Uns” (God with us). The wreath and motto are both in front of a decorative lined type pattern which is encircled by two twisted ropes. The roundel lies on a smooth rectangular backing. The reverse is clearly maker marked “R. S. & S.” (Richard Sieper & Sohne, Lüdenscheid). The steel painted prongs and catch remain intact. Attached to the pin/post sleeve is a dark brown leather tab which has been folded over and stitched in place. The tab is maker marked and dated: “R Sieper & Sohne Lüdenscheid 1940” matching the buckle. The leather is stiff and crazed. The buckle measures approximately 2 1/2 inch wide by 1 7/8 inches high. A fine example!
