This is a nice, Type 1, (1935-1937) injection moulded, Luftwaffe Aluminum "Droop Tailed" buckle. The leather belt is nice and supple. The former owner was "Kurt Schreibel" and he carved his name twice on the belt! Also this belt is dated 1937, and has the manufacturer's stamp on it. Also the unit Kurt was in is STAMPED on the belt. The buckle is marked by the manufacturer - Richard Sieper & Sohne (RSS). This belt & buckle are a rarity, in they are a matched set - from the beginning in 1937 - VERY HARD TO FIND!
