Reichswehr - 1935 Unit Marked

Article about: A new addition to the Reichswehr buckles. This is a very interesting buckle and the price was nice as well. Full Overhoff & Cie leather maker mark and very nice overall condition. Just p

    It is 2nd company, 2nd Machine Gun Battalion. The Roman numeral II states for the status of the equipment. It is not the I class Issue but the II class issue. It has nothing to do with unit identification. Great buckle by the way.

    Great learning thread.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Page 76, Volume 1, "UNIFORMS & TRADITIONS OF THE GERMAN ARMY 1933-1945" specifically explains these markings.

    "Clothing articles of the same kind were classified according to their wearing value into grades or "Garnituren". The wearing value of every single article was evaluated and controlled at the yearly clothing inspections, The highest grade, Garnitur I, was new or nearly new, and was used as parade dress. The lowest grade, Garnitur IV was for drill duty"

    The description shows typical markings with the company first, then period and slash, followed by type of unit..AR,IR,....,then unit designation and finally the garnitur status.

    With a 100,000 man army this was pretty easy to do. Sometime around the expansion of the Heer in 1936 this marking system was discontinued.

    Fred is correct.

    A super buckle.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: I love your display Fred. The feldgrau wool in the Riker mounts is a nice touch.
