    The conundrum is to point out what is wrong with a reproduction or keep silent. By posting the information, collectors will be helped and money saved. Of course, it will also help the fakers correct their errors. Eventually, even without on line discussion, the people who made these buckles will hear through the grapevine what is wrong. There are dealers who work in partnership with the manufacturers of 4th Reich curios. I, for one would continue to educate and let the fakers work harder. In the end, honest age of nearly 70 years is a difficult thing to fake.
