SS OFFICER'S BELT BUCKLE
Die struck, silver washed, aluminium alloy construction circular buckle.
The buckle features a high relief stylized national eagle with outstretched, downward curving, wings clutching an oak-leaf wreath which encompasses a static swastika. The background of the eagle is slightly pebbled and the top half of the buckle has a simulated rope like border. The bottom half of the buckle has an embossed banner with an embossed Gothic scripted motto, "Meine Ehre heißt Treue", (My Honour is Loyalty).
The original silver wash is almost completely retained. The reverse of the buckle is a mirror image of the obverse and has a raised circular center piece with crimped edges to hold the buckle catch and crimped retainer for the prong bar and prongs.
The prong bar and prongs are both intact.
SS RZM and maker's mark are stamped on the back side.
The belt is made in blackened leather, it is still soft and complete of its aluminium catch.
Overall an excellent SS Officer set of belt and belt buckle.
