    Default DAF Buckle

    Found this at a Flea market and wanted some expert advice. It is still very shiny, nickle and silver? I really can not find a single flaw on the front face. It hard to take a picture of without my reflection in it. In my case if something looks to be too good to be true it usually is. But I am by far no expert on these. Please let me know what you guys think. Its MINT so i am questioning it.Click image for larger version.

    Thanks for the welcome! The woman selling it wanted $70, I offered 35 and she just said yes. Had a good number of WWII pins and some German so I thought it may be legit and figured what the hell for 35 bucks.

    I thought it looked a little too fresh as well. Are these buckles still reproduced? I have been looking all over and can not find another chrome looking one. The Woman that was selling it had all old military stuff, a lot of pins and patches so I was hoping it was not a knock off. But threw the 35 dollar offer in case it was a fake. If you want more pictures of any part that may help pinpoint the creation time please let me know. Thanks for the help!

    Hello,

    your buckle is 1000% original .

    Never chrome gets on Aluminium !

    Aluminium buckles are anodized or collored .

    Your's looks like fresh natural aluminium , polished up . Only at the front !

    Here to comparison some Pic's from user Gwar . Not the sharp contours :

    I definitely see the difference there. The placement of the swastika inside the gear matches up as does every other placement of features i can see. All the edges have a beveled look and feel on the front. Maybe this occurred during the polishing?
