NEW OLD STOCK, this is the mid-war type with separate tongue. Military belts and buckles date back hundreds of years, and were originally designed for attaching swords and daggers.
Fist introduced in 1935, the Luftwaffe Belt and Buckle underwent minor modifications. In 1937, it received a new pattern eagle and then again in 1940 with a slight difference of construction. Luftwaffe personnel originally utilized brown leather, but during the war, the leather items were usually blackened.Made of leather and steel, this 1940 pattern leather belt is in EXCELLENT unused condition, and it retains 98% of its original finish! Slight marks due to the age, but nothing that detracts. The tongue to attach the buckle was never installed (or was removed), so one will need to either fit one, or add holes on the outside (late-war) to attach a buckle.
Smaller in length, it is marked with an RBn. Ould make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items.
Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\WW II (1939-45)\Original Period Items\Germany\Personal, Field Gear".
