G020461 BAVARIAN CUSTOMS SERVICE 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 51mm slightly convex, stamped brass pre-1895 pattern box-buckle with separate face plate. The plate features the coat of arms of the state of Bavaria to its domed center. 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.  

GRADE ****                                                         PRICE $140.00
