SS EM Belt Buckle by "O & C ges. Gesch.”
SS EM Belt Buckle by "O & C ges. Gesch.” - An early nickel SS Enlisted Man's/Non-Commissioned Officer's Belt buckle by "O & C ges. gesch." Worn example with minor nicks, with good looking patina; in very fine condition; with leather tab, marked “Overhoff and Cie Lüdenscheid 1935”. Design of this belt buckle first appeared probably around 1927, and was exclusively made by company “O & C” (Overhoff and Cie) until about 1931. Prior to that time the SS units wore the SA design buckle. From around 1931 onwards Overhoff and Cie was still the principal maker of this SS buckle, however the other companies also began to manufacture the SS buckle.
