The SS is a fake, the roundels are fakes, the top four look original from the pics, but denazified and in bad condition. The police buckle you had also looked like a fake
I can say with absolute certainty that the bottom SS buckle is a common fake...and there are other questionable ones as well...sorry, friend...
roundels are also fakes !! need better pictures on the top ones !!
That SS buckle is a dead giveway fake they have been around longer than you think. Agree with Ben on Denazified buckles can't help you on officers Round buckles. timothy
It would be a good investment of time to study the sticky threads on original and fake buckles. You don't want to make any expensive mistakes.
I don't like Any of them-even the de-nazified pieces look questionable. I would pass on the lot, for sure.

I've noticed that even de-nazified buckles are going for ok money on eBay. I'm sure dodgy sellers are denazifying fakes just to add credibility to them... I'm not commenting on the above buckles, just a comment...
I actually like de-nazified buckles - especially ground found ones like these obviously are ( note the corrosion spots in the aluminum )
I mean even they tell a story - either done by Soviet soldiers as trophies, used post war for their utilitarian purposes without showing the banned symbol or by defeated POWs in internment camps, they have a history all their own. If they are cheap, I buy them
