I have been offered a few buckles by a collector, and I think they are wrong but would be interested in your opinions before declining to make an offer. The emblem appears to have a blob of solder keeping it to the buckle face which looks somewhat messy and un German.
All the best,

In my opinion, this one is also a fake. Almost every NSBO requires a 'leap of faith,' but some reveal themselves to be phony. This method of attachment may have been used on some (few) genuine buckles, but this certainly is not one of them.
D, this buckle is a fake mate, wrong colour, bad catch, bad fixing point
No surprises really. I knew it before I started out with it this morning but thought I should double check before consigning the chaps collection to the bin.
I always value others opinions as I am known to be wrong on numerous occasions according to my wife!!!
