What kind of Buckle is this, please?
I've come across a German Buckle that I'm unable to identify with certainty...I'd be grateful for your help!
The depiction is somewhat reminiscent of Post WWI Heimwehr/Home Guard Insignia...
Your input and opinions are appreciated...

Glenn i think that is a Night Watchman's Guild Buckle!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
It's for night watchmen/security guards.
The buckle also exists in a variant with the title "Reichseinheitsverband des Deutschen Bewachungsgewerbes e.V. Berlin [Unified National Organisation of the Guarding Trade (registered association), Berlin].
Edit: Paul outdrew me.
Notice the example Gunny shows has an inscription around the center and Glen's example does not. Here is the backside of maker marked buckle that I believe is a WWII period example. I think I read somewhere that post-war examples are around.
Thank you for your help, Friends...Much Appreciated!
Very nice buckle and nice to see one maker marked especially with the Dicke Haus marking, nice buckle Glen
