Yesterday Manfred from Feinschmuck gave me this belt buckle made after a 13th. century coat of arms (Stadtwappen / Stadtsiegel) from the city of Munich. 

Can someone make out the full text on the buckle and figure out the meaning?

Below something from Wikipedia the full story here: Münchner Kindl.

The coat of arms of Munich (Münchner Wappen) depicts a young monk dressed in black holding a red book. It has existed in a similar form since the 13th century, though at certain points in its history it has not depicted the central figure of the monk at all. As the German name for Munich, i.e. München, means of Monks, the monk in this case is a self-explanatory symbol who represents the city of Munich. Appearing on a document of May 28, 1239, the oldest seal of Munich has a picture of a monk wearing an open hood. While all seal impressions show the monk with the book in one hand and three outstretched fingers in the other, the monk has varied slightly, appearing in profile, then later full-faced and bare-headed. By the 19th century the figure was portrayed as youthful and became known as the Münchner Kindl or Munich Child. The coat of arms in its current form was created in 1957 and is still an important symbol of the Bavarian state capital.

Another great piece by Feinschmuck. A 99,9%, very detailed reproduction of a cast bronze Celtic warrior armlet, torque decorated with engraved geometrical pattern, Hallstatt culture (about 800 to 475BC). Manfred did a great job of putting some patina on it, just in case you do not want to wear it for some centuries.

Available at Feinschmuck or at Ecke32 in Konstanz.
