    Default Deutsche Rote Kreuz Belt Buckle

    Kind of new here, but have found some amazing stories and information. I have this-


    and have not been able to find any information on it. I found it among some other WW2 memorabilia and just would like some info on the belt buckle. Any help is greatly appreciated, and thank you in advance for all your expertise.

    Bucke i think is DRK.(not to familair with DRK)
    As for lot Black wound bage (black round badge), left of black wound badge is a KVK2nd class. looks to be a US watch(what the maker?) and EM US Hat.

    Fork, spoon and knife is US iusse.

    Fork/spoon looks to be German issue.

    Rest is misc tinnie and other stuff. (other collectors can help you with)

    Thanks. The watch is a Tellus with a broken main spring. Swiss made in the 40's. The bag that all this came in is American Red Cross. I also have the toe tag for the soldier who collected these. He was wounded not KIA.

    As said, a very nice original 1938 pattern Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (DRK) buckle by Overhoff & Cie, Lüdenscheid Attached here is the alternate and later 1938 pattern DRK buckle in injection-molded zinc or "kriegsmetall."

    Best,
    Adam

    P.S. - I agree, the watch looks American and a lot like a Hamilton I have.

    Hah...a Hamilton it is not. Perhaps better to focus on the thread than to multitask while drinking a scotch!

    Wow. I didn't expect that many responses so quickly. The information is very interesting. Didn't think that it would be 1938, but from the early 40's. Things are starting to make more and more sense with these war trophies. About what would you expect to pay for a piece like this?

    P.S.- here's a better picture of the watch

    That's okay. It allows me to reply more times and get more posts. Either way it is a cool watch that doesn't seem worth repairing.
