    Good looking private purchase belt and buckle which was used by soldiers with the walking out uniform

    The black leather belt is usually lacquered and much thinner than the issued one

    The buckle maker is not D.R.G.M., these letters mean Deutsche Reich Gebraucht Muster, which can be translated by "patented by the german empire" or something close to that

    The issued buckles can have the makers name stamped at the back of the buckle or on the leather tongue together with the yar of issue

    Prost ! Steve.

    Ben, is it rarer or less common with the DRGM marking?
