    ...only I have the consolation that may be an artesian buckle made in a small cottage workshop, the leather tab, stitch, patina, smell... seem to indicate that it is an old buckle, but...
    I think perhaps you are being a little hard on yourself as whether you like it or not, you have within this and other forums, the well deserved reputation as being a highly respected authority and expert in relation belt buckles. This is true.

    The point that I was clumsily trying to make was that in my opinion, there are times when we perhaps should throw caution to the wind and collect with our heart, even though the head is saying no, no, no!

    These so called Kampfzeit buckles included those as you say, which were the product of mid 1920's era, cottage industries and could be to a very high degree, hand made to a specific order. If you were street fighting with communists in the back streets of Berlin, I think that the last thing that you would be worried about is the construction and makers mark of your belt buckle. Instead - this buckle and this armband show that I am National Socialist, patriot and defender of Germany - as you give the other chap a jolly good kicking.

    If the subject buckle "talked" to you, then enough said. Admittedly not one for me, although again, a highly subjective genre of buckles and which are great fun.

    Attached is another Kampfzeit buckle that I hold and which illustrates just how rudimentary some of these examples can be.

    Regards,

    David

    Dear David
    Thanks for your kind words.
    As always you're right, it's been love at first sight ... a purchase made with the heart..., I've been in Berlin at Easter and maybe that influenced me.
    Best regards
    Iván
