WWII German Political Leader Belt and Buckle w/GI Inscription-This is a great set! The GI hand wrote on the reverse of the belt, in pencil, the following:
"Captive (sic) a German LT. in a small German town 1944 belt + gun + knife"
How cool is that? On to the description. The belt is Havana brown leather that is very clean, soft and supple. There is minor wear and a stain or two only. It measures 58mm wide. Both of the slides are present. The keeper is marked RZM M4/27 indicating production by Overhoff & Cie, Lüdenscheid. The tongue end is stamped with the size, 90 cm. It measures, buckle and keeper included, 40" long so it will fit up to a size 36 waist. The buckle is in fantastic condition, retaining all of its gilt finish to the obverse. The reverse is marked RZM M4/87 indicating production by Matthias Salcher & Sohne, Wagstadt. Overall an excellent example!
