A German Police Enlisted Man's Belt & Buckle by Christian Theodor Dicke; KARLSRUHE

Buckle in silvered aluminum on the right end, unmarked, illustrating an angled swastika, with a half-wreath of oak leaves and acorns with a ribbon at the base below and inscribed "Gott mit uns" above, on a pebbled background, the buckle measuring 48.5 mm x 64.5 mm. Belt is fabricated from a thick leather with a smooth finished black upper, smooth finished dark brown underside, a tab with a smooth finished dark brown upper stitched in place on the underside at the right end, the tab with seven rows of two holes each for length adjustment, emboss stamped "120" on the underside of the belt near the end of the tab, maker marked "C.T.D." (Christian Theodor Dicke, Lüdenscheid) and marked "D.R.G.M." (Deutsches Reichsgebrauchsmuster) on the reverse of the receiving clip on the left end, emboss stamped where the belt wraps around to the reverse on the left end with a worn maker's mark but the location designation "KARLSRUHE" remains legible and is dated "1939", two embossed stamps framed by rectangular boxes on the underside of the belt near the receiving clip, inscribed "1939" and "Po" respectively, without sliders, the belt measuring 44 mm x 1,285 mm. Light wear on the upper, slight crazing and wear evident on the underside. Near extremely fine.

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.
