N006577 NSDAP POLITICAL LEADER'S BELT & BELT BUCKLE. (Koppel und Koppelschloß)

BACKGROUND: Belts for Political Leaders were initially produced of chocolate brown leather, until 1939, when the Havana brown color was chosen as its replacement. The circular Political Leader’s buckle was introduced in 1940, a double open-claw buckle having been used prior to that and, prior to 1934, the SA buckle.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A 57mm wide, 105cm long, Havana brown leather belt, with its cast, gilt-washed aluminum belt buckle. The roughly 56mm diameter buckle features, to its convex obverse, a spread-winged eagle clutching a wreathed, mobile swastika in its talons, all encircled by a wreath of oak leaves, which the eagle’s wings extend into. To a depression to its concave reverse has been fitted a buckle catch, the opposite side of which is crimped around a keeper in the form of an open, vertical rectangle. Marked RZM, "Reichszeugmeisterei" (National-materiel-control-office), logo, alongside of which is "M4/24" for Friedrich Linden, Lüdenscheid. Belt has had the size adjustment tab removed and had nine pairs of adjustment holes punched, no doubt done to make the waist size smaller.
