    What are the markings on the rear of the buckle, they are normally marked CTD

    This is a good buckle. It should be marked Ges Gesch CTD for Dicke as Ben suggested. You can just make out the Ges. This crank catch is pretty standard for the Dicke Night Watchman buckles.

    The old ones should have the inscription on the inner of the inset front as:
    Reicheinheitsverband des Deutschen Bewachungsgewerbes e.V. Berlin
    "Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
    zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916

    Here are two buckles mentioned in this trhead. Both are by Dicke.
    With that said I am a bit confused by wilhelm's comment on the Berlin marked buckle. I always thought that this was for another "Watchman's" guild and had nothting to do with when it was produced. The Berlin buckle is quite scarce but that could be due to the smaller guild . Maybe I am totally wrong on this. Would appreciate some further input from other members.

    Markus, What makes you think this is an earlier buckle?? Why can't it just be a Berlin guild ??
