Title Model 1895 Bavarian waist belt clasp, other ranks
Nationality German
Period c 1910
Price £75.00

This has got its original leather tag, designed to keep the ammunition pouch in place on the belt, and is stamped 'OEL' to the reverse, which may stand for 'Offenberg - Engels & Co, Ludenscheid'. The size of the lettering (larger than normal) may indicate post-war ownership by this factory for use on a display board or as a sample.

From about 1916 on, these were replaced by die-struck steel examples with a grey wash. There is some bruising to the box frame where the OEL mark shows through from the reverse.
