    Hello, Today I've got this nice Luft buckle.. OK..a luft buckle..some would say.. this is nothing unusual..



    But this one is special.

    Look at the ears.. I only know One maker who makes these ears like the steel-buckles..
    Right.. That's Schmöle & Comp. Menden.

    Than please look at the colour.. fieldgrey.. That's the colour for ground -fighting troops.. and this buckle is made 1940.. at this time no single Luftwaffen Feld Division exists..
    They were found 1942..

    At 1940 only paratroopers existed.

    So I think I've got a rare bird..
    OK that condition is not mint.. The swastika is a bit damaged and the stamp on the leather tab is nearly gone..
    But this buckle is a " I have been there" buckle

    For comparison purposes: I've also the HEER -Schmöle buckle in my collection.
