    Default DAF Buckle Question

    I've read there are some repro DAF buckles going around, so just wanted other opinions. Looks good to me but wanted to double-check.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I like D.A.F. items along with R.A.D. related stuff, I find it very attractive collecting material....not sure I can help you on authenticating this piece but it looks very 'new' shall we say........if I was offered it I would find the lack of wear and use a bit dubious.......it should reflect the fact that it is 70 years old...........does'nt really look it though unless it has been very well cleaned or 'restored'..............hmmmmm

    The condition doesn't really mean anything. There are lots of unissued or lightly used original buckles.

    I think the buckle is original, but I don't have the experience to say so with confidence. Please wait for the more experienced guys to tell you for sure. Personally, I believe that the prong bar looks quite correct for this type of buckle.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
