    Hi Rob, just had a look at both my HA's markings with an eyeglass & it looks like the 3 in the 43 lays over the top of a 2. Probably they didn't want to waste money making new dies; but just retooled the old ones with the new date. Are yours the same?, Cheers, Richard.

    Hi Rob, I've just looked at the photo's of Bens that at the top of the tread & it's same as mine with the 3 over the top of the 2. You can just see the bottom part of the 2 poking out beyond the 3, cheers, Richard.

    Hi Rob, Nice one. I noticed it because I was going cross eyed trying to figure out if it was a 2 or a 3 and of course it's both!!! I wonder if all the HA '43 dated buckles are like that, Cheers, Richard.

    Good question....not sure if they are all like that! (all the 43's anyways! )

    Be interesting to see if any other members have examples of both styles, Cheers, Richard.
