Hello everyone,
this was described as a Bundeswher belt and buckle but do we know when was it made?
Thanks in advance,
Chris

I can't answer your question about the exact age of this Bundeswehr belt.
Interestingly it was made by two different companies:

Belt: S/fir tree/C: Schmoele & Co., Menden/Westfalen

Buckle: OLC = Overhoff & Co., Luedenscheid

Both companies already had produced Wehrmacht belts & buckles until 1945. Later on they delivered Bundeswehr equipment since 1956.

And for it's use, this is the standard belt for use with the full dress uniform (parades, swearing in, etc.).

Don't think the Stamp is the date as all early Belts I know have a groove next to the sides, newer, so after 1990 didn't had them so as the new ones with the missing strap and the Clip Buckle.

ok was not 100% sure was date, so was guess. Have seen 80s examples with date in similar area, but stamps were a little different and clearer, that it was the date.
