German WWII Kriegsmarine Combat Buckle-This is an other ranks O/R combat example. Choice example with 95% of the blue paint still intact on the one-piece steel buckle. Excellent marked example. Rarely encountered, marked with JFS for manufacturer Josef Feix & Söhne. Rumor has it that these buckles were used by both the Heer and the Kriegsmarine combat troops. The catch is “U” shaped with flat feet and the roll bar/prongs are plated steel. Interesting that the roll bar is painted brown. Won’t last long.
