B&B #35339C Luftwaffe Officer's Brocade Belt

This Luftwaffe Officer's Brocade Belt is in choice, mint condition throughout. The belt features very fine aluminum brocade, with twin lines of darker gray running throughout, and a highlighted center line of striking red. The inside of the belt is lined with a canvas-like material of gray color. This indicates the belt was probably made later on in the period, otherwise the lining would have been of the usual wool. The belt is also complete with the keeper and the two slides, all intact. The brocade slides of this example exactly match the belt.

The buckle is a beautiful oval aluminum example, which has a high center, and having finely pebbled surfaces throughout. The edges are decorated with raised out, overlapping oak leaves and acorns, which form a full wreath. In the very center is an applied Luftwaffe gilded eagle. The eagle is flying to the viewer's right, and is clutching an open mobile swastika in his talons. The detail to the bird's feathering is very nicely done, in keeping with the rest of the detailing to this buckle.

A beautiful belt here, which has apparently been maintained in this condition by careful storage in an original black issue box. The box itself is largely intact, but unfortunately the inner lid of the box has become disconnected. It still is a fine set, however. The belt and buckle are easily in mint condition, and the box, while not perfect, is a a period item and really completes the set. An exceptional Luftwaffe item here.

B&B #33716 Weimar/Early Third Reich Army NCO Belt/Buckle

This early Third Reich belt and buckle is quite interesting because of the stampings inside. The belt is a dark brown or black leather outside. Stamped on the inside area in two places is “2 PZ ABW. / II”. This stamping would obviously tie into a Panzer Abwehr unit. The Panzer Abwehr were the units which ran the large mobile guns designed to knock out tanks. The leather throughout this belt shows quite a bit of usage and some age but it is still all there. The rectangular buckle is the style with pebbled finish. It has the double rope-like circles raised out with the slogan in between, “Gott Mit Uns”. Below is a wreath of laurel leaves. In the center area is the raised out Weimar style eagle. The detail to the bird is still fairly good. I am sure that this is the original buckle that comes with this belt.

A great rigging here especially if you are outfitting a Panzer Abwehr mannequin.

B&B #28149 American Naval Belt Buckle and Sword Hanger Eyelets

This buckle and belt assembly appears to be of American Naval vintage, but I am not totally sure of this. The belt is a dark brown example, having dual rows of stitching in the center for strength. The belt has flaps that protect the uniform from brass eyelets made to carry the sword. There are two eyelets, one having a hook for regain wear of the sword. The brass buckle is of round design, having overlapping oak leaves running throughout its border. At every quadrant there are crossed ribbons. There is a raised out area in the center, bordered by a rope design. The center area appears to show an American eagle holding an anchor in its talons. There are no markings on the belt or buckle.

This Army EM buckle is a steel base. It has an excellent olive drab paint finish. I assume that the paint is original, as it certainly is old looking.

This buckle displays two pressed out rope circles which have the motto “Gott Mit Uns” at the upper portion. The lower portion portrays a wreath of oak leaves.

B&B #31201 Army Belt & Buckle

This army belt and buckle is quite interesting, as the belt is a nice rich brown color instead of the usual black that we see on army examples. The buckle itself has also been permanently sewn to the belt. It looks as though it was worn in this fashion for many years. The buckle is the typical rectangular army NCO molded type. It has a pebbled finish and there is green paint in lots of the backgrounds as well as on the reverse of the buckle. The green paint is probably about 30% - 40%. The center of the buckle has two circular rope rings which enclose the slogan “Gott Mit Uns” and below this, a wreath of oak leaves. The center area features a Wehrmacht style eagle having half—closed wings and clutching a swastika. The breast feathering on the bird shows some wear but overall, it is not too bad. A very good looking belt rigging here.
