    Default Buckle from Stalingrad. Help me identify please.

    I'm new in the forum so hello to everybody . I don't know if this is the proper place to post this but let's try . I got this belt buckle from Stalingrad purchased from a dealer from Volgograd. Does anybody know to which army this buckle belongs? Maybe it's not from any army... The dealer is a good russian friend of mine, and trustworthy, so it comes from the Stalingrad area, that's for sure. Dug-up by himself. The curiousity is that the star has 6 points and the communist has 5. It's more likely to be a Jewish star, but it's quite weird...

    Thanks in advance.
    Ricardo.

    I tend to think if it really was dug in Stalingrad, that it belonged to a Jewish Russian soldier, or perhaps a volunteer. Certainly not German.

    Hi Richardo, it is not a military buckle either German or Soviet. I suspect it is a civillian buckle? But the design does look period for the 1930/'40's.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Many thanks Adrian. Yes, I think it's not a military buckle... The "civilian" option is more likely. A civilian who might have fought in the defense of Stalingrad... Many civilians did so, right?

    There were many civillians caught up in the battle. It may well have belonged to one of these.

    Cheers, Ade.
