Attractive, WH (Heeres) field-grey-coloured- and/or steel-based belt-buckle being a maker- (ie. 'Jul. Kemp'-) marked- and/or '1941' dated example that comes mounted onto its leather-based tab and that comes in a wonderful condition
This is a very attractive - and I deem just moderately used! - example of a (Heeres) typical field-grey-coloured- and/or steel-based belt-buckle (ie. 'Koppelschloss für Unteroffiziere u. Mannschaften des Heeres') being a clearly maker- (ie. 'Jul. Kemp'-) marked- and/or: '1941' dated example that comes mounted onto its (light-brown-coloured) leather-based tab and that comes in an overall very nice- (I deem just moderately worn- ie. used-), condition. The buckle truly retains almost all of its somewhat 'matted'-styled, field-grey-coloured finish without showing any real defaults: it does show some minimal wear- and age-marks but was simply never cleaned nor polished and does show some minimal (rust) staining ie. 'Flugrost' (as can be seen on the pictures). The inside of the buckle shows also some obvious dust and/or staining 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: 'Jul. Kemp - Lüdenscheid - 1941'-stamp (as can be clearly seen in the pictures) and remains in an equally very nicely preserved condition overall (it was I deem never greased nor oiled but does show some minimal age ie. staining). The buckle itself is also maker-marked and does show the designation: 'IKA 41' (something that is more often observed). Simply an attractive - and nowadays quite scarcely found! - neatly maker-marked, 'Heeres'-example that is priced according to its overall nice ie. just minimally used- ie. hardly worn condition!
