    Default Wurttemburg Buckle - Anyone Seen One Like This Before?

    Here's a very unique Wurttemburg Buckle. It's unlike any other I have seen before.

    Apparently a private purchase piece, made by "Mayer & Wilhelm, Stuttgart".

    I've never heard of them as a maker, and I've never seen a catch like this.

    Best Regards,

    Alan

    Why is that Harry? I have never seen one with a catch like that, I presume its original?

    Thanks Ben & Harry, I appreciate it!

    They are not on any list of Imperial German buckle makers that I am aware of. And I have never seen a catch like this on any Imperial German buckle.

    I missed out on buying it this past fall of 2014. Someone wanted it way more than I did, and paid over $325.00 for it at the time.

    Apparently they were established in 1860, and were involved in manufacturing commemorative medals, among other things. And they were registered to produce belt buckles during the 3rd Reich, their RZM number was M4/69.

    Here's a copy of text from an old advertisement listing for them that I found on the internet:

    Medaillen- und MünzPrägeanstalt

    Wilh. Mayer & Frz. Wilhelm

    in Stuttgart.

    o e o Gegründet 1860. o o o Gravier-, Präge- und galvanoplast. Anstalt.

    SHaketten * jTCedaillen JTCünzen

    auf ältere u. neuere historische Ereignisse.

    Orden und Ehrenzeichen, Vereinsabzeichen,

    geprägt, emailliert, galvanoplastiseh. Verkleinerungen von grossen Modellen auf

    Reduktionsmaschinen. ■V Abbildungen und Muster zu Diensten. ~aBQ

    Best Regards,

    First time I have seen a catch like this. Welcome to this forum Alan. See you at the SOS.

    I would have thought this type of catch would be for a parade buckle, i don't think it would take much abuse in the field as i reckon the brass would start to tear!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I am not a collector of buckles, but the way of production is looking fine for this time period imo. This manufacturer is still in the business and is located in my home town near Stuttgart. I go with my feeling, looks for me real this buckle.
