Didier, from the prongs I would say that the tab reads Berge & Nolte? Is that correct?
do you know who used this buckle ?
nobody knows ?
may be it's not military ?
Difficult, although I have always regarded this "neutral" as post 1945.
The various suggestions however are (a) a pre 1945 buckle, (b) a post 1945 buckle, (c) a buckle worn by "special" pre 1945 groups and of course not forgetting (d), a buckle worn by members of the Condor Legion.
Can't help with who would have worn this buckle.....but I really like it. Love these "enigmatic" buckles!
Didier, again as has been stated a buckle that is a bit of an enigma, if Berge & Nolte carried on making buckles after the war then maybe that could be a post war connection, my own personal feeling is that the buckle was made pre 45, I base that on the construction of the buckle from the rear, the prongs, catch all very typical of Nolte, then there is the tab, nice wear to it, again original and matches in with the buckle in that both wear made by Nolte. So all in all, I think you have a very interesting buckle that actually answers but also asks alot of question!
thanks Gentlemen for all explanations
so, a supposition, if this buckle is genuine, what is your own opinion (feeling) about who used these buckles ?
civilian units ?
I hope you can understand my bad english !!!
