This is a WW I German belt and buckle. The buckle is made of steel, and retains most of the original field gray paint. "Gott Mit Uns" translates to God is with us. The motto surrounds the Prussian crown. The leather keeper on the buckle prevents the ammo pouches when attached from sliding. The buckle was made in Nurnberg in 1918. The belt has no markings and is the standard belt worn by the infantry troops.

    I am trying to identify a German WWI belt and buckle. I have not been able to identify the markings on the inside of the belt. It reads BJA III Co.2f. Is this the soldier and his company or the manufacturer? Thanks .
