Original Waffen SS EM/NCO's Belt Buckle By Overhoff & Cie With Original Leather Combat Belt-
Presented is an original Waffen SS EM/NCO's Belt Buckle, emblematic of war-time production by the esteemed manufacturer Overhoff & Cie, a prominent supplier of SS belt buckles throughout the Third Reich era. This unmarked buckle, representative of typical war-time craftsmanship, features a smooth outer field housing a central motif of remarkable detail: an SS-style national eagle, its wings elegantly outstretched, grasping a laurel wreath enveloping a static swastika. Encircled by a circular twisted rope border adorned with the Gothic script motto, "Meine Ehre heißt Treue!" (My Honor is Loyalty!), this emblem exudes historical significance.

While approximately 5% of the original silver paint remains on the exterior, lending it a weathered appearance evocative of its combat history, an impressive 75% of the original paint adorns the back. The backside, mirroring the front, bears witness to wear marks from the combat belt, which have gently worn away some paint with some minor rust areas. Despite its battle-worn appearance, the details of this buckle remain crisp, accentuating its authenticity and historical resonance.

Offered is a combat leather belt, indicative of wartime usage, yet remarkably preserved in excellent condition. While exhibiting signs of use, such as slight thread unraveling at the buckle tongue, the belt remains fully intact and functional, securely holding its position. The steel hook, painted in a field gray hue, adds to its authentic appearance.

This belt is sized marked 95cm and bears the RB Number, denoting its designation within the military supply system. Additionally, a faint ink stamp of an eagle with wreath and swastika within a circle adorns the leather, serving as a subtle yet significant reminder of its historical context.

Overall, this combat leather belt embodies the resilience and durability demanded by its wartime service, offering a tangible link to the past and a poignant testament to the valor of those who wore it.

In very good condition, this Waffen SS belt & buckle stands as a tangible relic of a pivotal era in history, capturing the essence of craftsmanship and valor amidst the tumult of war.
