SS Enlisted Man’s Belt Buckle

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is pretty ordinary, seems to be made from aluminium. I am quite aware that this has as much chance of being original as I do of suddenly growing an extra head therefore I shall classify it as a fake until otherwise informed.

Hitler Youth Leader Buckle

Posted in Belts & Belt Buckles, Uniforms with tags , , on April 14, 2013 by The Dude

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is a nice HJ Leaders buckle RZM stamped to the rear M4/116. I don’t think one of the loops is original to the buckle as it has a slightly different finish to it. This isn’t uncommon as these frequently got separated from each other.The buckle is manufactured by Camill Bergmann & Company in Gablonz.
