Killer combat worn example of an early aluminum belt buckle worn by Enlisted Men and NCO’s in the Waffen-SS. The buckle has a nice field worn look with a few areas with storage wear. The reverse hardware is undamaged and without repair, near the catch is the marking (RZM 822/37 ᛋᛋ). This manufacture umber refers to the maker “822” (822 is presumed to be Richard Sieper or C.T. Dicke), while “37” is the year of production 1937. This buckle exhibits wear and use, but still has crisp details and overall is very sought after.
