    Default Heer Buckle - Dr Franke Unit Marked

    A good day for buckle deliveries . Been waiting a few weeks for this one to arrive. Combat worn, leather tab appears a replacement since the maker appears different. Unit marked on back = St.3./G.A.R./79 - Gebirgsjager Artillerie Regiment 79. Did some research and found some links on this unit - part of the 1.Gebirgs-Division as best I can determine...a few links - interesting:

    Another nice buckle Jeff, both tab and buckle original just when was it applied, period or post war, very hard to tell to be honest. The stitching looks to be three ply thread, however they are now reproducing that or using original war stock. Still overall a nice piece

    Ben, comparing this buckle and thread "in hand" to other combat conditioned Heer buckles I have where the buckle and leather tab maker matches, with the trusty magnifying glass, this stitching looks exactly the same. But you are correct we'll never really know - I like it
