German Belt Buckle and breast Eagle


Recommended Posts

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.

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.
