    Buckles 2 and 3 are and in my opinion - fake. Many indicators and with the two prime ones being (1) methods of affixing the roundels and (2), the spurious and nonsense DRGM stampings.

    Yes, I must echo David, buckle 2 + 3 seems not to be period. The gold one has the same prongs, OLC used on the Bundeswehr buckles...can it be, that OLC produced these pre war ?

    I don't think that the belt catch style was made pre-war. Buckles 2 and 3 are repros for sure - I think buckle two was actually put together using a variety of different materials such as the belt catch....look at the prong bar too. Definitely not good. First one appears to be an authentic 2 piece parade buckle.
    Cheers!

    I agree with the rest, 1st buckle original, could be made by Friedrich Linden from the what I can see of the eagle, would need better pics to confirm, other two I would invite you to please put them in the rouges gallery
