Gott Mit Uns Belt Buckle

Gott Mit Uns is a German phrase that means "God with us" and has been used by the German Empire from the 17th century until the end of the Third Reich.

The first registered usage of Gott Mit Uns on a belt buckle is in the first world war where some Prussian enlisted men had the words Gott Mit Uns above a crown on their belt buckle.

By World War Two all enlisted men in the Wehrmacht had the slogan Gott Mit Uns on their belt buckle. The World War Two belt buckles had lost the crown underneath and replaced it with the Reichsadler, an eagle above the swastika, which is the insignia of the Third Reich (1933 - 1945).

Today many World War Two collectors seek to purchase these buckles for their historical value and their ornate design depicting the Third Reich.

    1. i HAVE A BELT BUCKLE, BUT THE LEATHER BELT IS NOT ATTACHED. I found it in4my Mother's
      stuff after she passed away in 1988. Her brother, John T Fallon, was in WWII, he
      compensated a nautize flag, with a medal attached to the flag. I believe this belt
      buckle, probably belong with the flag. I still have the flag, medal and buckle it does
      match the pictures, I have seen on this site. It says GOTT MIT UNS, WITH A EAGLE IN
      CENTER. A DESIGN LOOKS LIKE WHEAT. iT HAS a small leather attached to the buckle, has
      a sewed pattern on it all the way thru, looks like a pouch. There is a number stamped
      on the leather 1941.
      Thank you my email is srmoody1950@yahoo.com
