    Hello,

    IMO that's a normal WH buckle with rests of his "fieldgrey" Color .

    Marker from backside pic is Aurich Dresden .

    Are you shure that the frontside pic is the same buckle likes the backside

    Markus is correct, the back side shows a buckle by Aurich the front is not an Aurich eagle. maybe it has been denazified as an Aurich buckle and a Heer roundel has been soldered on? Very strange buckle something not right, again this is a crank catch Aurich buckle.

    Hi Ben
    You might be right, perhaps the buckle has been modified during war as you decribes.

    Whether done TR period or post war who knows, but with the situation with the buckle its the most plausible answer to it
