Pigeon Head Fake... Sorry chum.. Better luck next time... IMHO...G
Thanks, I'm not into buckles (yet), but soon...
Fabe, Keep trying and don't get discouraged.. It happens to all of us at one time or another..
Watch, study and view threads and if possible post and ask before a purchase...Good luck and I look forward to your future "Great Finds"...G
Fabe, What are you trying to collect if I may ask ?
Gwar is correct; this is a classic 'pigeon head' fake. As stated, study genuine and fake buckles, and most fakes will be very obvious soon.
Thanks - I always post before buying
I collect mainly German and Hungarian field-gear, documents...and in the last year or so; cold war stuff (mostly Hungarian - some NVA and CCCP bits and pieces)
This is my blunder example.. Don't beat yourself up.. It is a learning process...
The trick is to Listen, View and ask questions... Good luck friend...G
Fabe, as the lads have stated the buckle is a pigeon head fake, if you are going to start collecting buckles have a good read of the fixed threads here mate and dont be afraid to post pics of buckles before you buy until you are confident with what you are buying, good hunting
Happens to us all, as mentioned read up in here and don't be afraid to ask... Better to ask before purchase than get that sinking feeling after purchase...
