    Default Help Identify and authenticate this Belt

    Hello Again Dear Friends,

    Well, I got caught up in the moment of Ebay with an interesting item & little time left. I put in what I thought was a very low bid at $24 and low and behold I won. Now lets see what I bought. The item was listed as a Luftwaffe belt with some interesting markings. Seller said he thought it was marked 1935. I am posting his pictures. I trust this is okay. When I receive the belt I will take more and post them. Until then here is what I have to work with.

    for that price - it is a great buy and it looks right to me.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I would wait until you get it, rub a little talc in the lettering and and see exactly what you have, (might not need it in the end) again mate at $24 a steal

    Hello,
    Ben is right, this belt is 100% from the Reichswehr...
    Belts from the Weimar era are rare now...even more uncommon than WWI belts...
    Good catch
    Thanks

    JP,

    Thanks for the response. I will do a little study of both the Reichswehr & the Weimar era.
