Default Luftwaffe Tropical

Added a Heinrich Arld Luftwaffe with a green web tab to my collection. I had two others but I need one with a web tab. All three are marked HA 42

Has about the same wear as my unmarked buckle with a blue web.

Nice condition. I have also seen the same green finished HA 42 buckles with a leather Arld tab.

I have looked and it isn’t marked but I believe your right about it being a GB. GB also made the silver painted Heer and Luftwaffe with the white web tab.

Mine is marked GB and 41 dated, on the buckle itself - opposite site of the GB marking.

Nice buckle but is it a green or blue tab ? Hard to tell with the lighting.

Thank you
The tab is (was) blue but it is discolored. So it's more blue/grey. The flash makes it worse.

Blue grey and a green. The green example was actually worn in Tunisia.
