GERMAN EARLY WWII POLICE BELT BUCKLE
Our next favorite metal detecting find is this German EARLY WWII POLICE belt buckle (Ordnungspolizei) made from aluminium, found by Andraz.
Andraz has sent us a lot of great finds to this date and this is another great one! This time he found a German EARLY WWII POLICE belt buckle (Ordnungspolizei) made from aluminium. He wrote: “While detecting in Austria, I have stumbled upon an area with german and Croatian Ustasha ww2 relics. The area is large, so there is probably still something there.”
Informations (Wikipedia.org): “The Ordnungspolizei (abbreviated Orpo, were the uniformed police force in Nazi Germany between 1936 and 1945. The Orpo organization was absorbed into the Nazi monopoly on power after regional police jurisdiction was removed in favor of the central Nazi government (Verreichlichung of the police). The Orpo was under the administration of the Interior Ministry but headed by members of the SS until the end of World War II. Owing to their green uniforms, Orpo were also referred to as Grüne Polizei (green police). The force was first established as a centralized organization uniting the municipal, city, and rural uniformed police that had been organized on a state-by-state basis. The Ordnungspolizei encompassed virtually all of Nazi Germany’s law-enforcement and emergency response organizations, including fire brigades, coast guard, civil defense, and even night watchmen. Deployed along with the German Army (Wehrmacht) in the invasion of Poland in 1939, it had the task of policing the civilian population of the conquered and colonized countries beginning in spring 1940.”
He is using the Garrett AT PRO metal detector.
