    It is a steel Heer buckle by Gustav Brehmer, Markneukirchen, dated 1942.

    See the examples in post #18 of this thread: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/belt-b...-makers-250-2/

    But the catch looks different. ???

    Yes, these were typically painted. Green for Heer or Dark blue for Coastal Artillery.

    Very hard to see what colour it is, blue or green! Buckle is by Gustav Brehmer, Markneukirchen, but the catch looks to have been replaced, it is not a normal Brehmer catch, here are a couple of examples for reference
