A tabbed Luftwaffe Tropical EM/NCO Belt and Buckle by Heinrich Arld, Nürnberg 1942, that was instituted in 1940. The buckle is constructed out of a die struck steel base that has been olive drab painted. The obverse features a centrally placed 2nd pattern Luftwaffe open winged eagle clutching a swastika in one of its talons, on top of an oval pebbled background, that is all encircled by a laurel leaf and berry wreath that is tied together at the bottom and all lies on a smooth rectangular backing. The reverse is clearly maker marked “HA 42” (Heinrich Arld, Nürnberg | 1942). The steel prongs and soldered on steel catch remain in great condition. Attached to the pin/post sleeve is a brown leather tab which has been folded over and stitched in place. The tab is maker marked and dated: “H. Arld Nürnberg 1942” matching the buckle. The obverse of the buckle is well worn retaining approximately 65% of its original paint. The buckle measures approximately 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 7/8 inches high. Attached to the buckle is a 1st pattern “100” sized black leather belt. It features a stitched on steel hook to the one end and a stitched on 14 hole punched tongue to the other. The leather has been protected with shoe polish and is in good shape. A nice Luftwaffe assembly!
