Recently picked up out of the woodwork in Tennessee, this example of a Heer (Army) Officer brocade buckle in aluminum is fantastic, these would’ve been worn during parades and formal events. Produced by Assman & Sohne and marked with their trademark “A” on the reverse. The buckle and latch are both complete. When found their was a full length section of parade belt, it was missing the inside felt lining and belt hole section. Though it is not functional in this matter, it still displays well and comes with the piece. Great uncleaned piece!
