G011959 M1915 WÜRTTEMBERG EM/NCO'S BELT BUCKLE. (Koppelschloß)

BACKGROUND: Originally the box buckles came in a 50mm, (roughly 2 inches), width until 1895 when the width was reduced to 45mm, (roughly 1 3/4 inches), in an attempt to lighten the weight load of the field gear. Initially the buckles were produced of brass with a nickel/silver face plate until 1914 when steel construction buckles were introduced.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A 47mm slightly convex, one-piece steel construction box-buckle with feldgrau paint. The obverse features the coat of arms of the state of Württemberg to its domed center, encompassed by a dual rope-like border within which, against a ribbed background, is "Furchtlos Und Trew" (Fearless And Loyal) with a six-pointed star to the base. To the reverse of the buckle may be seen a metal prong bar with dual prongs, for the retaining tongue of a belt, as well as the buckle catch. Unmarked.
