Much better, thanks. Is the Heer buckle brass ??? Kriegsmarine?
The SS buckle have any markings? I would tone it if it were mine, to make it more appealing. (put boiled egg yolk on it or hold it in a candle flame then wipe it off). Nice collection
Emo.. Thanks.. I was concerned about the buckle only because of the "Pencil Beak".. I had been burned some time ago by a similar buckle... I am getting my collection up and ready soon.. I have boxes upon
boxes of things i probably don't even know I have... Gwar

Hope to be in PA. at the MAX show in Oct.. if time permits.. Would like to meet ya sometime.. Nice collection by the way... Take care Emo.. Gwar
Thanks, Gwar! I would like to meet you as well. I may go to the MAX show this year if I get the opportunity. I will probably be at the next Allentown show, but that is not as large of course. It's only about 30 minutes from me, though, so I will most likely stop in.
I have been admiring your RAD collection as you add to it! That is most impressive and very focused. I'm a bit more frenetic at the moment, but I may pick a specialty as time goes by.
Emo.. We all have a niche.. I was tired of getting burned by lack of knowledge on EK2's and Heer - Luftwaffe buckles.. I find I feel more comfortable with the RaD.. On a better note... I have a surprise
for the forum soon and I will keep you in the know...G
Beautiful RAD collection. The officers belt at right are very rare, never seen one. I used to talk to every old person I could find in Germany in the 60s about their RAD experience, and almost all said it was the best time of their lives, especially the women. The Arbeitsdienst was a very wholesome organization and I think it will become activated again in many variations in the future. Thanks for showing!
