Wehrmacht (Heer) Belt and Buckle (Koppel und Koppelschloß mit Lederwiderhalt). 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. Nice fieldgrey painted aluminum construction aluminum box buckle with a pebbled background. The buckle is nicely maker marked 'Dr. F. & Co.' indicating production by the company 'Dr. Franke & Co K.G.' from Lüdenscheid. The buckle is complete with its original leather tab. The buckle is complete with its original 95cms long sized leather belt as found together. The belt is not visible maker marked or dated. Nice original set is in good used condition!
