Here we have a 2nd pattern Army (Heer) Belt and Buckle (Koppelschloß) by Gebr Kugel und Fink of Lüdenscheid, that was instituted in 1937. The buckle is constructed of an injection molded aluminum alloy base that has been silver washed and burnished. The obverse roundel depicts a closed winged Heer eagle griping a mobile swastika in its talons on a textured 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 background which is encircled by two twisted ropes. The roundel lies on a pebbled rectangular backing. The green painted reverse shows an integral catch and aluminum pin, post/sleeve and prongs assembly. It shows period wear yet nice detail remains. The buckle measures approximately 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 7/8 inches high. Attached to the buckle is a 1st pattern 35 ½ inch long black/brown leather belt. It features a stitched on aluminum alloy hook to the one end and a stitched on 14 hole punched tongue to the other. The leather is maker marked and dated though is tough to make out. The leather is in wonderful shape. One you won’t want to miss!
