A unique and well-preserved relic, the top portion of a belt buckle worn by Luftwaffe Feldwebel Moeller, killed in action over Kent during the Battle of Britain. Moeller, 2/LG 2, flew a Messerschmidt 109 E3 and died in intense aerial combat with an FO Marston of 56 Squadron on August 24, 1940. Moeller violently crashed into a local farm in Bobbing, Kent-- the investigators who unearthed Moeller in 1972 reported that the plane had impacted to over 25 feet. Buckle face is fully intact, with only minor soiling at inner detail. Verso shows some signs of degradation, else fine. Excellent provenance included. A great World War II and aviation relic! From the personal collection of World War II and Civil War historian Michael Miner. Miner's thirty-year collection was built through an extensive system of contacts he developed with artifact hunters and diggers in Europe and the Far East, and he maintained careful records of the items he amassed.
