    Correct and original ! as described, two Imperial "Kaiserlischemarine" (Navy) and one Wurttemburg Army contingent strap, it looks like this one originally had a metal cypher attached now long gone ! .....the second Navel strap is a slip on type for the white summer tunic hence the "T" bar end....the other two are sew in variety. A good find at $25 !
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)
