Here we have an Army (Heer) Officers Brocade Belt and Buckle (Koppelschloß), that was introduced in 1937 and comes with an issue box. The buckle is constructed out of a die stamped aluminum-alloy base that has been silver washed. The round shaped obverse features a Heer closed winged eagle above a rough/textured round backing that is surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the bottom and has a thin smooth border. It measures approximately 2 inches in diameter. The buckle is attached to a quality ribbed, woven bright silver/aluminum and green rayon construction brocade belt. The exterior of the belt has two horizontal green lines surrounded by silver flatwire/aluminum thread with chain link stitching to the top and bottom. It also has two vertical adjustment slides, in the same construction. The interior is lined in a green wool and has a stitched on brown leather tongue. Attached to the tongue is the proper rectangular aluminum catch. The buckle shows patina and wonderfully detailed throughout the eagles wings, head and wreath. The belt is in wonderful condition! The belt and buckle comes with a brugandy case that fits the belt quite nicely. A superb example that would be a prized piece in your collection! The belt and buckle comes housed in the appropriate issue box. The case is constructed out of a cardboard base that is covered in simulated leatherette. It has a manufacturer sticker. The bottom interior of the case was partially ripped through and been re-attached with glue. The exterior shows scuffs throughout. The case measures 8 ½ inches in diameter. It’s rare getting it in its original issue case!
