I could have confused myself... I have handled a fair bit of post war German kit recently...I know for sure I have east German badges marked Assman, and I am positive my buckle, west german, are marked the same.....will check it out when I can
I have the BW OLC marked buckle (old style) as well as the webbed OLC marked examples shown.
Here's my Berlin police that is just like yours Ben - with OLC markings in the same spot...but the bear is red?
Could different colours mean something? I have to say: I don't know much about postwar buckles - but I do like to add them to my German buckle collection.
PS.....Will also add a State police buckle that I think is probably postwar as well as a Hannover police that was post-war made as well I think.
Here are the others.....
State police.....anyone have any more info on these? I assume immediately postwar but are these still used today? Nice to see the Gott Mit Uns moto!
Any markings on these last two Rob?
Not that I recall Ben.....not at home at the moment....will look tonight when I get home....but I'm pretty sure they don't.
