A Red Cross Officer's (Leader's) Belt with Buckle in Carrying Case; Published Example

Buckle in silvered aluminum on the right end, marked marked "GES. GESCH." with the manufacturing code "2" inside a double circle on the reverse, the buckle measuring 50.2 mm. Belt fabricated from a very thick leather, with a smooth finished black upper, smooth finished beige underside, silvered aluminum receiving clip held firmly in place where the belt wraps around to the reverse on the left end, smooth finished black leather tab stitched in place to the underside on the right end, with two rows of five holes each for length adjustment, handwritten in black ink "95" on the underside of the belt at the tip on the right end, the belt with one slider with a smooth finished black upper, the belt measuring 44 mm x 1,150 mm. In its circular hardshelled carrying case, tan coloured smooth-grained leather exterior, heavily-stitched, with a white cotton lining, long strap stitched in place on the back that acts as a hinge, the strap with a snap closure on the tip and when fed through horizontal straps on both the front and back, then connected to the snap post on the front, ensures a secure closure. Very light contact and crazing on the upper of the belt, tab and slider. Light contact and soiling on the case. Near mint. This particular belt with buckle and carrying case is illustrated on page 502 of "Belt Buckles & Brocades of the Third Reich, Revised Edition" by John R. Angolia and came from his personal collection. Footnote: From the collection of approximately 900 German buckles accumulated by John R. Angolia, who start collecting buckles, belts and brocades from 1944 until around 1990; most of the buckles were obtained from the American and German veterans; most of these buckles present a core of Angolia’s book “Belt Buckles & Brocades of the Third Reich”, published in 2001.
