I would say that is a nice and important buckle Ivan, the eagle very typical of the Menden makers. I would class this as a sort of transitional buckle moving between style of catches from the Imperial/Weimar era into the TR era of buckle making, very nice indeed
Note the eagle in comparison of the Dransfeld buckle from Menden
Both the S&C and Dransfeld buckle together for comparison
Great buckle. As you say Ben, that big catch is like a Weimar
Both joined for comparison
that's a great buckle.
what a beauty .......... nice add .........
I'm searching for
special SA/NSKK/NSFK with maker marks
