German K98 G43 98K Sling Buckles


The typical sling will have  "L&F", "D&C", or "S|C" or "SC" or "S&C" impressions in the steel buckle. Many buckle appears completely devoid of any impressions or markings. It is my belief that these stood for;

 "L&F" = Linden & Funke G.m.b.H., Iserlohn

"D&C" =  Dransfeld & Co., Menden

"S|C" or "SC" or "S&C" = Schmöle und Co., Menden

If you have information to the contrary, please let me know.
