    Default Yet another buckle

    This is a belt and buckle I inherited from my father. I don't know anything else about it. He may have brought it back from Germany when he was stationed there in the 50's. I'm guessing that it is standard issue. I can't identify any manufacturer marks. Any comments would be appreciated.

    The belt and ammo pouch setup is standard German issue. The buckle is often considered to be Afrika Korps issue because of the web tab. Doesn't look marked but it's legit I'm sure. Maybe Ben could help ID the maker by looking at the eagle?
    Nice rig! Thanks for posting!

    Nice set, the buckle is Hermann Aurich, if you look at the rear like the one pictured you will see the maker mark and the year of manufacture

    Hi John

    I have a buckle similar to your (I send a pic of mine)

    I agree with Rob, it's afrika type used in Italy too from 1943.
