    Dear Ben

    Clumsy and lazy English on my part and I owe the forum an apology.

    Rather like yourself, I think that the buckle that started the thread is an original pre 1945 example. I do like that distinctive catch.

    What I was trying to say and in my Neanderthal sort of way is that in my opinion, the buckle per se was produced pre 1945, however also for a period, post 1945.

    Hope that this clarifies my comments.

    Regards,

    David

    Yes David, it does indeed I will try and find a post 45 example to post on the thread for reference. I have been looking at the buckle and recently I have seen a late war SS buckle with a catch almost identical, do you think the buckle could have been made by Overhoff?

    Chaps, having a good look at the buckle and I saw this buckle, look at the catches and how similiar they are, anyone any thoughts?

    Very similar, so buckle until 1945?

    They dont normally, if the original owner put one on you are lucky, so in all they were not issued with leather support tabs but some owners had them put on
