The history of the belt buckle is almost as old as the human race. As soon as clothing was used by early man, a device was created to ensure clothing stayed secure. Easy to decorate, the belt buckle soon became a means to project social status and wealth. By the 20th century, belt buckles used by German soldiers were often beautifully deocrated, and used to differentiate ranks and organisations. Today, they are coveted by collectors across the globe This incisive book evaluates the German belt buckle from a collectors' perspective.
