This is a scarce WWI Prussian Belt Buckle Variant. This one is Pre-1917 and known as “ The American Style.” On the buckle is a protruding circle with a crown in the middle surrounded by Laurels and the words “Gott Mit Uns” which translates into “God With Us.” This phrase was used in heraldry in Prussia, but was later adopted by the German Nazis and used from the German Empire to the end of the Third Reich in 1945.
Approximately 2-1/2” Long, ¾” High, 2” Wide.
Brass and Nickel
Roller and Boot
