    Default Openface Wehrmacht officer's buckle with EM style hook closure

    I've know that Assmann also made these styles, but it's the first time I ever came across one, so I thought I'd share it as an interesting oddity. On the surface, it appears to be a normal Zweidornkoppel, but the claws are actually only for show and the belt has a hook closure like an EM style belt. It's nicely felt-backed, so it must have been meant as a fancy item for officers, who wanted to avoid having crinkles on their belts, but the superfurlus nature of the design also explains why this type is rarely seen on belts.

    Very nice Nick!
    Never seen one like this before. I believe the claws would be for sizing, (similar to the combat belts), not just for show.

    Yes, of course, the claws were for sizing, but the point was once you had it adjusted, there was no need to weave the belt through the buckle.
