Including strikes traces on the swas arms.
Why ? Have no clue, again a puzzle.
PS: Could state with idea of some stamp's flaws but there are a very similar spots of dirt too.
Strangely to see it on the polished piece.
Hi Alex, now it has been in a book it must be worth more
It is a great looking buckle and one I had not seen before until your thread.
I am learning a lot about buckles recently due to all these great threads.
Alex when you bought the buckle was it from a dealer or from a private seller. and if you dont mind what does something like this go for.
This is interesting.
Attached is an image of a buckle which is being openly advertised as a fake on a well known German auction site.
Different of course in many ways from yours, although eerily and coincidentally, with some strange similarities.
i recently bought the pocket book where the buckle is published. two things struck me : the reverse of the buckles wasn't added and the strange pricing scale for some items ...
