Nice original buckle and belt, is there a hint of a makers mark here?
Luft belt has jet lag, haahaa ;-)
Great belt und buckle!
Looks like paint on the back? Why would it be plated and painted?
There could be. When I look at it under a loop, it's hard to tell due to all of the nicks, etc. Blown up version of the area below.
Do you have an opinion of who the maker could be based on the construction? Might be easier to marry up the marking, in lieu of trying to make it out from photos or viewing under magnification.
I know it's a long shot, however any guess as to when it would have been chromed; period parade or GI souvenir?
Thanks again; I appreciate your help.
I am hoping my friend Rudi reads the thread, he will know the maker for sure
