    Question Help needed with ID 3 German buckles: TMH? / Gott mit uns / casle buckle. ??

    Hi Guys

    I found a banana box full of German buckles and belts, now I'm not a belt collector (yet). I were able to sort out the regulair belts like sa/dj/hj/rad/daf/police/marine and many more.

    But I can't find any info about the 3 following buckles. Any help is apreciated

    Best regards Tommy

    # 1 is upside down: It's not "TMH", but "THW". This is a buckle for the Technisches Hilfswerk (= the federal Technical Emergency Corps), i.e. the post-war equivalent to the Technische Nothilfe.

    # 2 shows the coat-of-arms of the Rhineland:

    # 3 shows the city coat-of-arms ot the City of Hamburg:
    Flaggen und Wappen - Stadt Hamburg

    I think that ## 2 and 3 are post-war Police or Fire Department Buckles, but this is not my area of expertise.

    Tommy, they have a value but not great, most guys want period TR buckles, there is not a vast market for post war ones, which is a shame as some are very interesting!

    Ben hit the nail on the head! I have buckles 2 and 3 that you have posted as I collect German buckles from all eras (though I do try and stick with ww1 and ww2). The last buckle that you have shown could be a TR perdiod Fire Dept. buckle from Hamburg. Construction looks good. The second buckle shown is a police buckle that was used most probably right after ww2. I like all of them. I've never seen the first buckle before....I find that one quite interesting!

    I might be way off here, but isn't the first one the Munich castle? Looks either familiar, or similar

    Sorry, but most definitely not. It's Hamburg. Please compare:

    Landeswappen Hamburgs
