    Hi All,
    I recently bought a modern Bundeswehr, Heer parade belt & buckle, which is marked to Overhoff. The leather belt is also stamped with 1852 V 0686 90 , would you happen to know what this indicates ? I think the 90 refers to the waist size, the 1852 the manufacturer (?) the rest........?

    I wish I could help but I do not know the meanings of these markings.
    This being said OLC or Overhoff & Cie in Lüdenscheid is known for manufacturing numerous things such as equipment bucklery ( early rucksacks and mapcases for a start ), combat as well as parade belts and so on.
    A few others makers can be added to the list :

    OFW = Otto Förster, Wupperthal
    WMF = Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik AG, Geislingen an der Steige

    Both markings existing on 4 pieces Bundeswehr cutlery sets OFW being one of the most prolific maker to my knowledge.

    I also wonder if the cutlery sets marked " NAHT Hamburg " can be linked to the still existing marine equipment company named A. W. Naht GmbH Hamburg founded in 1869 ?
