    Default I traded a helmet for some Heer buckles!

    I am starting to really get into belt buckle collecting (thanks to Ben Evans:P) and I rather have them then helmets. I had a poor condition WWI German Helmet that I had gotten for $150, and decided I wanted to trade with a local shop keeper for some buckles. I think I did fairly well with the trade considering I got three neat buckles. The first two are Heer buckles made by the same maker. They both have the same stamps, R. S. & S., and they were both made in Ludenscheid, but I can't actually read the makers name on the tabs. I love that the 1938 buckle has the initials H H etched into the leather! The third buckle is a standard german WWI enlisted mans buckle. I'm curious as to what you guys think about the trade I made, and was wondering if yous can tell me any information about the buckles, like who the maker was. I'm also including pictures of the helmet that I traded as well.

    Thank you all and I hope to hear from you guys!

    P.S. I hope to hear from Ben Evans, kirby, Gunny Hartmann, Gwar, harryamb2, weller, and Erno!

    I started seriously collecting about a month ago and have acquired, a single decal Luftwaffe M40 helmet, a Feuerschutzpolzei sidecap, a Feuerschutzpolizei buckle, a NSDAP printed armband, a Civil Service armband, a Hitler Youth armband, a carbon monoxide testing kit, a wound badge, three Heer buckles, an WWI Imperial German buckle, and a set of Heer unused decals. I could definitely say in addicted to this stuff.

    Thanks for the quick response Jeff!

    Those are some nice buckles! I really like the aluminum Heer, which retains a lot of its original paint. I don't know what the helmet is worth, but I think it was a good trade. The maker of both WWII Heer buckles is Richard Sieper & Söhne.

    You did very well. I would have traded the helmet straight across for the pebbled RS&S.

    There is always that great feeling of having an object that you admire and value in your hands and it belongs to you.
    I think you made a great trade buddy.

    Sean, I think you did well to be honest, the aluminium Seiper buckle is the star of the show though. Aluminium buckles are hard to come by with their paint still on due to they wore down very quickly, that example still has a fair amount of paint on it so to me very nice. The steel one is also very nice again in good condition. The Imperial buckle worries me to be honest, I dont like the flattened ends of the prongs. Hard to tell from the pics, I have not seen angle cut prong ends on imperial buckles before! The deal is still good, I echo Kirby,s comments, I would have traded for the Aluminium buckle on its own Just for your learning purposes on early alu buckles by Seiper some were double marked, they had the early markings under the prong sleeve as well as the later one by the catch
