G4203D4 Army Steel Belt Buckle, B & N - 43

G4203D4 Army Steel Belt Buckle, B & N - 43

This is a classic wartime steel army combat buckle. The belt buckle is a single piece steel stamping.    In the center of the integral roundel is a drop wing army pattern eagle.  Around the eagle is an oak leaf  half wreath and the traditional German Army ”Gott Mit Uns” motto above the wreath.

This buckle is either unissued or was used very little, but does show some age from improper storage.

The catch is the steel normal wire catch with ends flattened to form feet. It is brazed to the steel body. The roll bar consists of a steel pin with a steel shroud holding steel prongs in place.

This buckle is marked "B & N - 43" near the edge of the buckle on the catch end (Berg & Nolte., Ludenscheid, 1943.)

The front of the buckle retains about 80% of its original field gray paint. The field gray paint on the reverse of the buckle is about 95%.
