Title Prussian infantry belt buckle, 1896 model
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Price £50.00

This standard buckle is the 45 mm width variety, which in 1896 replaced the earlier 50 mm width variety of 1848. It would have been worn on a russet brown leather belt at the beginning of WW1, which soon changed to black leather during the course of the war. The same thing happened with the jackboot.

There is a medium sized dent to the crown. The tag is in good shape apart from a small break at the hinge and some shrinkage, the stitching appears intact.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
