Never seen one original but from the make up of the buckle, the cast flaws and unfinished edges I would say it is modern made
i don't see any red flags on it .But i have never seen a other Original to compare .....
Is it from tarnmilitaria netherlands ?
I'm searching for
special SA/NSKK/NSFK with maker marks
Link to my collection : http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/album.php?albumid=1175
as far as I can remember (but it is about 30 years ago I had two of them)
I think this one is okay. I have never seen a marked one. As far as I know
this type is for girls.
I do not know if this type was ever faked. They were rather easily to find
when I collected (this in contrary to the rectangular male buckle).
The photograph is from 1977. The keeper from the left one does not belong
there. From the date of ending my collection I do not have photographs. I
then had about 265 TR buckles and I thought 10 brocades.
Have a look at lower right, the golden HJ-leaders. This was a gift from the
managing clerk from Dicke (who later was at the Overhoff-concern). At the
moment I got it there were only 3 or 4 known in the world. It appeared in
the first Angolia. These days every himself respecting "expert" buckle-collector
has one in his collection.
Original? From most I do not believe that as one in good and perfect condition,
can easily be gilded. No problem and it hardly costs!
Just a little anecdote: the well-known Klietmann said to me in those days
that golden versions never had existed. The man had not ever seen a
regulation about the buckle mentioned.
