First War German Army Telegrapher's Belt Buckle-Silvered steel, magnetic, convex, unmarked, illustrating the Imperial crown in the center over an open-ended wreath with the inscription "GOTT MIT UNS" (God is with Us) above. The brackets are riveted in place on either end on the obverse in order to hold the steel frame that supported a reel of telegraph wire.  There is surface wear and rust evident but still very fine. You can see hints of the original green paint. A very interesting buckle.
