Unissued Pebbled Heer

Recommended Posts

Hey guys....Took in a militaria show today and found a real nice treasure! It's an unissued, mint Heer buckle from Gustav Brehmer! This is my "mintiest" pebbled heer by far! Dated 1940 and well marked! She's a welcome addition to the collection.

This one got me thinking of you Ben! hahahaha Question for you - when did they stop making the pebbled Heer buckles?

Hope you guys like it! I think she's awesome! ;)

Rob, I am well jealous :speechless1: mate that is one nice buckle, if you ever let it go you know who to ask :D Quite an rarity also in that by 1940 steel buckles were introduced and you do not see many Alu buckles made after 1939, so probably one of some of the last Alu buckles to be made, very good find mate ;)

Hey Ben...I'm glad you like it buddy! I thought you might. When the day comes - you'll be the guy! ;)

Thanks for the info! I thought 1940 was the year that the steel buckle was introduced...I agree: this must have been one of the last to be made before the total conversion!

By the way - it was the first buckle I came across at the show....sure did a double take on it! hahaha

Thanks again for the info!
