  1. Just picked this up off of eBay. Can anyone confirm that this is WW2 German and ID the maker? VDNS 40 Thank you.
  2. Hope this answers some questions.
  3. I am always looking for something I don't have. This brass Cuban buckle is such an item.
  4. Here is a picture of one of these belts that sold on the South African auction site Bid or Buy. It was a bring back from the Angolan Bush War. Even though the above buckle is the standard Cuban shield I wanted to show that the canvas buckles were being used in the border war,
  5. I have come to realize That these items are from the DAK or Afrika Korps. The buckle has a makers mark of GB near the loop and 44 under the prongs. Can I get any info as to maker, rarity, or value? They are not for sale at this time. Thank you. Correction- 41 stamped under the prongs...
  6. I found pictures of these boots on a military web site. They are described as "1940's UDT swim shoes." Any old Frogmen out there that can verify this? Thanks again! NBN
  7. Where can I get one of those belts? I have the steel buckles with the Cuban shied and FAR, both on the rubber coated canvas belts. That would be my Hat Trick! lol Dove posso trovare una di quelle cinture? Ho le fibbie in acciaio con la piastrina cubana e FAR, entrambe sulle cinture di tela rivestite di gomma. Quello sarebbe il mio trucco del cappello! lol
  8. Found these at the bottom of a foot locker containing military items dating from WW 1 thru the Korean War. I am not a collector of Nazi Military items and any information would appreciated. There is a 41 stamped into the buckle under where the piece of belt attaches. Thank you.
  9. Found these at the bottom of a footlocker I purchased this weekend. There were military items that spanned from WW 1 thru the Korean War. The soles are marked MADE IN THE USA and inside it looks like a stamping that says 9.5 8256ROI? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. I recently acquired several Soviet made Cuban FAR belt buckles from a former resident of the USSR. He found them in an abandoned military base in Belarus. It has been a jump school along with other still classified areas of study. He advised me that in the 1980's Cuban officers would come to this base for "special training" and were give these buckles by the Russian cadre. They are made in the same manner as the Cuban buckles of the day, a zinc coated steel. The tongue is marked with a Cyrillic makers mark that looks like a palm tree. Painted with an almost indestructible grey paint on the back. Hope this helps clear up some questions.
