    Default 1939 LW Buckle on a 1943 belt.

    Gday All,

    On a gut feeling and impulse I picked this up today for AU150.00

    Belt has been period shortened, has some markings on it I am no too sure of!....I like the buckle, and the leather tab is still intact, and in a good light seems to match the maker on the buckle!

    Actually a quick google search on the number bought up 1 hit on a french militaria website for a LW code for a Festung in france?????

    Any thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated...

    Cheers,

    Tony

    Thanks gents!!!

    It will match my Heer D Day vets belt and buckle! There's also traces of green or feild grey paint on the inside of the buckle..

    Sometimes it's good to go with your gut.....

    Thanks mate....got it displayed sitting on the bottom of one of Jason's helmet stands under my SD Luftwaffe M40

    The female clasp on the inside of the buckle, can't think of the proper term, thru me a bit, never seen one quite so big before, but I have since learned this is a cast buckle...

    Thankyou for moving the thread!!!

    The number on the belt seems to be related somehow to "Festung Le Harve"
