Scarce German WWII FAD (Freiwillign Arbeits Dienst 1932) Buckle-The FAD, or Freiwilliger Arbeitdients, was a voluntary labor service that was one of the predecessors of the RAD. This buckle was worn by all ranks with a brown leather belt. It is pebbled throughout and produced in brass with a nickel silver finish that has minor toning/discoloration. There is very minor wear to the highlights, which feature an upright flat edged spade with a pair of wheat sprigs sprouting from the bottom of the handle. The catch is a “u” shaped round wire formed out of brass. The roll bar and prongs are plated steel. The catch end is stamped Ges Gesch. A scarce buckle!
