Wehrmacht (Heer) Belt and Buckle (Koppel und Koppelschloß). On 24 January 1936 this new pattern EM/NCO’s belt buckle was officially introduced to replace the previously worn Weimar era Reichsheer buckle. The basic design of the Reichsheer buckle was retained with the addition of the new Wehrmacht style national eagle. This pattern buckle was worn through-out the Third Reich period with minor manufacturing variations and different colored finishes. The colored finish was determined by regulations depending on what form of uniform it was to be worn with. This is a very rare and hard to find early nickel plated 2-piece brass construction box buckle with a pebbled background, the separate frontplate is attached with two soldered spots. The buckle comes together with its original 100cms long sized laquered and fieldgrey wool lined leather belt as found together. The belt is having a nice name and unit tag attached. Rare original early parade style belt and buckle set in good used condition!
