    Default Heer buckles x3

    Hello Gentlemen & Fellow Members,
    I have always been interested in Heer belts & buckles, but since i met Ben Evans (i mean still virtually), my interest for this particular field of collecting has increased slowly but surely. This man's passion is communicative....that's why i decided to post here some of my Heer sets....I hope you'll like what you'll see
    There are only three of them for today...
    Thanks for looking !

    Hello JP, got the magazine today thanks, wish I could read French Mate three very nice buckles with belts, the Kremp one is very nice, very distinct eagle, mind you saying that all three have, Seiper has its own eagle as does JFS with that droopy beak. Thanks for showing them mate, I await your next batch

    I'm sure also that we'll do it Ben
    2 pints of Lager please...
    As my brother lives in London, it will make things easier (it's closer to Derbyshire than Southern France).
    I'll post new ones soon...

    PS : Concerning the article, if you want a translation of some captions or parts of the text, don't hesitate to ask...It would be a pleasure.

    Hello Gentlemen,
    Here are another two Heer buckles.
    First one is aluminium Friedrich Linden dated 1938
    second one is painted steel, JC Maedicke dated 1941 (with tab) I like very much the wear on this buckle...

    Hello Ben,
    the steel one is a JC Maedicke for sure. Maker mark is faint on the leather tab, but definitly Maedicke...

    Hello Gentlemen,
    sorry for posting my buckles so slowly, but i'm a bit lazy these days, too hot, too sunny...
    First set shows lot of wear but the buckle still has a good amount of factory paint. Belt & buckle have been together sine their early days.
    This item is not anonymous and has a story, that's why this is my all time favourite belt & buckle. It belonged to a eighteen years old german soldier stabbed to death by a french partisan during the attack of a train station in Southern France in August 1944. Initials of the soldier were E and R (marked twice inside the belt). I also have his steel helmet as the partisan took it as well (with the K98k and ammo pouches that were on the belt).
    But i don't have neither the rifle nor the pouches.
    The buckle is unmarked and the leather tab is too used, the markings are too faint. Ben, i made a closer view of the eagle's head for you to try to find out about the maker. Buckle is dated 1940, with aluminium prongs.

    Second set is a good condition blue JFS with simplified leather belt (no tongue).
    Thank you for looking...
