Description
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing

This is high ranking OZNA officer belt buckle, the very first model. It's very rare item and it's produced in very small quantity. This early models are pretty crude in design with a lot of imperfections because it's very early production just after the WWII. This belt buckle is actually battlefield relic, dig out from old battlefield.

And now, a few words about OZNA. OZNA is Special Military Unit from the early beginnings of Tito's Yugoslavia. The meaning of abbreviation OZNA is Department for protection of the people (Odeljenje za Zastitu Naroda). This was unit with very wide authorizations. Main task of this unit was ruthless fight against enemies of new communist regime and also intelligence and counter intelligence work. This units is some Yugoslav variant of Soviet NKVD or later KGB units. They arrest and shot a lot of German collaborators and other elements which was against new regime. OZNA is actually predecessor of future Secret Service of Yugoslavia. In early days OZNA was formidable force which was authorized to arrest or liquidate anyone on any suspicion, very often without any trial.

All in all, very rare and nice item from one very hard period of Yugoslavian history.
