    Default Another Luftwaffe Belt & Buckle

    Here is another Belt and Buckle I bought many years ago. It is not nearly as detailed as the other I posted yesterday. It has a maker mark on the tab, H. Aurich, Dresden, 1942. There is a faint marking on the back of the buckle that I believe is an "AH" with the H sideways. That is the only markings I can find on anything. The Belt is soft but not in very good shape. The adjustment piece on the buckle end looks like it has been repositioned and resewn several times as if the leather stretched and the belt needed to be made smaller or the soldier lost a lot of weight and it needed adjusted.

    Let me know what you think.

    I sure appreciated all the comments from people. I really have no one to talk about these items with so this forum is great. Thanks to all.

    Nothing wrong with that set either, the buckle is typical Aurich Luft with the short catch and long ears so typical of Aurich, the only thing I would say is the tab need to be the other way around, in other words the makers mark on the tab need to face the front of the buckle. Belt is a typical combat one with the tongue moved due to its owner losing weight as the war went on and food was rationed, over all nice been there set

    I think it has been resewn. The thread looks very new. Whoever did this maybe got the tab on backwards. That's why it is so good to have you guys to write to. I never would have noticed that but I do see the difference with my other buckle and tab.

    Should I attempt to change it or just leave it? I'm inclined to just leave it.

    Thanks

    If you are happy with it then leave it, if it was loose then I would turn it around, but that is me, at the end of the day as long as you like it who cares

    I usually want to leave items as is but if you can find some thread , the proper size, I would turn the tab around and stitch it. As bad as the stitching looks now all you can do is improve the looks.

    Do you have any suggestions for type, color, style of thread to use?
