belt buckles


Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
militaria item German army issue combat belt, aluminium buckle
- German
This is the first pattern Heer aluminium issue waist buckle, stamped 'FLL' near the catch (for Friedrich Linden Co of Ludenscheid). The leather tag is faintly stamped 1938. These belts were worn in all the early campaigns: Poland 1939, France 1940 and in the beginning of the Russian campaign of 1941.

militaria item Kriegsmarine belt buckle
- German
This is the mid-war version, which replaced the gilt aluminium / gilt steel / brass type of the pre-war and early war years. It is virtually mint, with a little rust at the goal post catch on the reverse. Otherwise there is hardly any paint missing from the piece, one of the best examples I have come across. There is no maker mark.

militaria item Cornwall Rifle Volunteers officer's waist belt clasp
- British
This is the belt plate of the 1st or 2nd Administrative Battalion struck with the county arms surmounted by the Prince of Wales plumes between laurel sprays. It is a die-struck plate in white metal and dates from the earlier years of the unit. The later examples were the tongue and buckle variety.

militaria item Glasgow Yeomanry officer's waist belt clasp
- Scottish
The Glasgow Yeomanry was one of the oldest Scottish yeomanry units, troops originally being raised in the Glasgow area from 1797. This example may date from as early as 1848 and would have been unchanged until 1902, when the king's crown replaced the queen's.

militaria item Stormtroop belt buckle
- German
This is a typical Sturmabteilung buckle of two-piece construction with a gilding metal centre and a brass field and would originally have been worn on a brown leather belt. The Stormtroops were the fighting arm of the Nazi party when it came to disputing control of the streets with the Reds.

testimonials

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.

I wanted to thank you for the perfect service that you did selling and packing the swords. Everything worked perfect. At the airport I had no troubles at all, the airline took the package without been astonished at all.
