Article about: Dang, you guys are making me blush... ;-) I agree the wear is just right, and really unmessed with and that is important to me. Many times I see a pic of a buckle that looks like it has been

    I think the OP will have probably got the point that is being made people , let's move on !!

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Thx all for yr insights, and compliments as well, thank you very much ;-) And sorry for coming off a bit dejected on the initial response... I think this is special, it may not be SS or some rare thing, but to me it is a first rate Third Reich item, the Eagle/Swastika scream Nazi Germany, at war. And the provenance of the item, in the D Day area, that part of the war, items can't hardly have any more significance (to me, for personal reasons) than that.

    Not to mention it seems extremely well marked, although maybe this is a common maker, I wouldn't know.

    But I apologize, again. I don't know what got into me? Maybe it's the moonphase, cabin fever? Usually I'm nicer than this ;-)

    Sorry all, and I do hope for a certain level of camaraderie here, maybe in time.

    A very decent belt and buckle. The wear on the prong holes may also reflect the wearer in different clothing and with or without field gear. Consider the wearer may have used the belt walking out, with a sidearm, with full field gear, with an overcoat or camo jacket. I'd say it is a good war time worn item and you should be proud of it. Now build it out with some other field gear and take some more photos as you progress. NH
