3 Heer Buckles

Article about: So is your buckle painted feldgrau? Is it also painted on the back? It looks to be, but fotos can be deceiving.

    Default 3 Heer Buckles

    Wanted to see if anyone could tell me the maker on these army buckles.
    The steel buckle has a tab but the best i can make out is 1940 and dresden.
    I can only make out the year 1937 on the alum buckle with tab.
    As for the officer dress buckle.....no markings whatsoever.
    Both the alum enlisted and officer i found in 2010.
    Thanks everyone!

    The aluminium buckle could be by Louis Keller Oberstein but hard to tell from the pics, the steel buckle is a fake with an original tab sewn on officer buckle I dont know I have never collected them.

    Was it the spot weld mark on the steel buckle catch that gave it away?

    First thing was the eagles head, its a well known fake, have a trawl through the rouges gallery, there are a few in there, the shape of the buckle from the rear, spot welds, shape of catch, lack of detail on the front, plus years of experience But once seen these buckles should fool no one, once seen I recognise them as fakes straight away, no matter how they are camouflaged

    The officer's buckle looks the same manufacture as the one in my thread. Is the front painted feldgrau? If so it is DAK, if you believe Angolia (and I do)

    looking closer at the officers buckle it does appear to be painted.
    at first glance i just thought it was tarnished.
    i was not aware that these buckles were part of the normal every day wear.
    when purchased i thought it was just a parade buckle.
    not bad for trading off a re-parkerized 45cal hs pistol barrell!
