German Pre WW1/WW1 Bavarian Other Ranks Belt Buckle no. 2
A superb, bi-metal pre 1895 pat Imperial German, Bavarian State Belt Buckle.
These were reissued during WW1 to second and third line troops due to material shortages.
Note this buckle has the smaller roundal to center, more commonly found on the post 1895 patt buckle.
Some wear/polishing to front (notably a small hole where the cross to the top of the crown would have been), with dull, uncleaned tone overall.
To back is the original D catch, prong bar, and three solder holes, all in good order.
No maker or unit mark.
