Default Enlisted buckle with personalized reverse

Interesting, picked it up in antique shop as a German buckle and didn't notice the stamped info on the reverse until later. Not something I've encountered before?!

Hi Andrew,

A nice private purchase style buckle, with the German "G.M." portion of the"Deutsches Reich Patent Pending...../D.R.G.M." wording written out. This is one of a couple of styles where they wrote part of the wording out, versus simply just the "D.R.G.M." initials with the number. It is one of the various different patent number patterns of private purchase buckles they had available for the soldier to purchase.

I have this same marking on a Wurttemburg buckle in my collection.

Thanks for posting it!

Best Regards,

Alan
