Imperial German Buckles.

Article about: Next, 3 buckles with identical bodies but with different makers/sellers on the tabs. This design is by far my favourite. Really classy feel IMO. Each buckle is finished differently, one galv

    Hi Chaps, I know this one is not strictly a buckle; but I thought I'd post it as it's made from buckle parts. As you can see it's a 'trench art' crucifix. It's been made using 2 buckle roundals (one normal & one 'cadet') & mauser bullets. I feel it's a commercially made item for sale to troops as it's very well made.



    Cheers,

    Richard.

    First time I see one of these with Jesus affixed. Lots of work went into that one. THanks for sharing!

    Thanks Rob, yeah it's a solidly made thing. The sort of cross a Roman Catholic soldier would have used for prayers.

    Cheers,

    A really super informative thread and may it continue.

    Could any of you "Imperial" chaps throw some light on this very odd buckle, which I have previously shown within the "Belt Buckles of the Third Reich" forum - without success.

    Austro Hungarian "Sturmtruppen" ?

    Regards,

    David

    Hi David North, i would love to oblige, however the symbol (skull/grenades) isnt Imperial German, it is i believe an unofficial KuK (Austro-Hungarian army) symbol/roundal, the actual buckle looks to be a genuine, probably German made as its construction is correct, especially the 'prongs/bar' assembly (as opposed to known 'fakes'), i think that the silver roundal has been replaced at some time, as the area on the rear looks to be 'cleaner' around the centre/solder points of the buckle as to the rest of the buckle, doesnt have the same patina. Probably worn post WW1 by veterans. There is a known fake similiar to this but is one piece with Germanic script.

    Many thanks for this valuable information.

    Actually, I have never doubted for one moment the authenticity of this buckle as it came with a group of perfectly original, German "Stahlhelmbund" buckles.

    KuK sounds reasonable to me and possibly, a post 1918 "commemorative" buckle ?

    Who is M & G ?

    Hi David, yes it looks like a KuK buckle. I'll do some research & get back to you. Cheers, Richard.
