    Default Please Help Me Identify This Buckle

    Hey Everyone,
    Alright, I've had this piece for about 10 years now and have never been able to find another or any information on it. I inherited it along with a few other WWII items from my Grandmother who's brother brought it back from the war. Along with this the only other Nazi item was a Luftwaffe Gravity knife, so is this buckle associated with them? Any help would be appreciated!

    Ray, I don't know who but the why is $$$. I still have my buckle from the 60's and it is exactly the same without the swaz. Could have been made at any time as this buckle was used by US forces on fatigues from WWII until today. Could have been used by other nations as was the M-1. John

    Very interesting comments guys but the buckle was always in her possession and she was not the biker type at all LoL. Would there be a reason to do that in WWII? If it is a US buckle what type of buckle was the swastika from?

    These buckles are ww2 era German buckles. Often linked to the NSDAP Jugend, I've always considered these to be sympathizer buckles. I have a variety of them and there are lots of variants. Construction looks fine to me. Here is my example along with a couple other models!
