Title Prussian Army officer's 1910 model field service belt and buckle
Nationality German
Period 1910-18
Price £200.00

This belt was introduced to complement the field grey service tunic in 1910. The cypher is that of Kaiser Wilhelm II. It is a die-struck example in pot metal with a gilt wash, so probably of war-time make.

The leather extends to 113cm in length and is still supple, with expected age wear. It has a dark stain some 7cm long, starting about 20cm from the end of the tongue. The face plate retains some 50% of the original finish.

These belts were not as robustly built as the OR's type and thus had a much lower survival rate.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
