WH (Luftwaffe) bluish-grey-coloured, steel-based belt-buckle, being a maker- (ie. 'E. Schneider'-) marked- and/or: '1941'-dated example that comes mounted onto its leather-based tab and that comes in a 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-, condition
This is a truly very attractive example of a (Luftwaffe) bluish-grey-coloured- and/or typical steel-based belt-buckle, being a neatly maker- (ie. 'E. Schneider'-) marked- and/or: '1941'-dated example that comes mounted onto its natural-coloured leather-based tab and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. I deem 'virtually mint- ie. unissued'-), condition. The buckle truly retains almost all of its fairly 'matted- ie. satin'-styled, bluish-grey-coloured finish without showing any defaults whatsoever: it was simply never cleaned nor polished and does show some minimal storage-staining (as can be seen on the pictures). The inside of the buckle shows some obvious dust caused by over more than 80 years of storage. The leather-based tab is naturally also still fully functional and souple: it shows a clearly present, oval-shaped: 'E. Schneider - Lüdenscheid - 1941'-stamp (as can be clearly seen in the pictures) and remains in an equally nicely preserved condition overall (it was I deem never greased nor oiled but does show some minimal age ie. staining). The buckle itself is non-maker-marked as is more often observed. It should be noted that these minty examples are nowadays quite difficult to encounter. The piece originates from an extensive belt-buckle-collection that I recently acquired for the web-site. Simply a very attractive, 'E. Schneider'-marked 'Luftwaffe'-example that is priced according to its overall very nice ie. 'virtually mint- ie. unissued' condition!
