RAD/ Early EM/NCO’s Aluminum Belt buckle with Leather Tab, 1938



Early natural aluminum buckle (Koppelschlo) with its leather tongue intact with the manufacturer’s and the year of production 1938 for enlisted men and non-commissioned officers. The buckle is injection molded, with a grained base and a high relief circular central motif depicting five sheaves of wheat encompassing a smooth, inverted spade head with a sloping swastika on a circular, domed central field. The buckle shows some light wear that does not affect the details. The reverse of the buckle is a mirror image of the front. It has an integrated, raised buckle closure and a bar with two teeth. Very good condition, without cleaning the buckle and supple leather.
