SS ALU BELT BUCKLE "RZM 822/38 SS"
Scarce SS aluminium belt buckle, produced during the time-frame 1936-1940.
The obverse of the buckle features a smooth outer field with a high relief, embossed central motif consisting of an SS style national eagle with out-stretched wings, clutching a wreath encompassing a static swastika. The swastika and wreath are in turn encompassed by a circular simulated twisted rope border with Gothic script motto, "Meine Ehre heißt Treue!", (My Honour is Loyalty!). The script is situated on a subtly textured background field and is encircled by the inner and an outer simulated twisted rope borders.
The reverse of the buckle is a mirror image of the obverse and has the brazed buckle catch, prong bar and prongs all intact.
The aluminum buckle reverse is marked RZM 822/38 ᛋᛋ.
The belt buckle shows some usage sign and a nice patina.
Buckles like this are always scarcer to find.
