    Default ID a German - Austrian (?) Belt Buckle?

    Hello Folks -

    Not sure what time period or exactly who this roundel may have belonged to. Looks quite nicely made though and the leaves surrounding the scene look German/Austrian.

    Thanks for any help!

    Interesting.

    Pic of back would be helpful, and dimensions.

    Any provenance?

    Cheers,

    Pat, Steve -

    Thanks for looking. Here is the back shown next to a relic Austrian Buckle for perspective. Looks like it is missing the keeper(?).

    Is there lead solder or tape residue on the back ?
    I still think it's likely a table medal or medallion
    of some sort.............
    Regards,

    Still puzzled.

    Might be a centerpiece/roundel from a conventional pre-TR buckle. Or Walkwolf might be right.

    Cheers,

    Unfortunately I don't have a lot of info on it right now, but will try to find some more out about it. An interesting piece though, whatever...

    Hi there, it is a "Tätigkeitsabzeichen, Distanzschätzerabzeichen 1906" - Army distance estimator badge (?) . On the back it should look like this (picture from internet):
