Reichswehr buckle in aluminium

Article about: Hello Bill, I would say it is very hard to judge if the buckle is made from aluminium or nickel silver only by images. In the case of Christian's buckle I have to mention, that I had this pa

    Default Reichswehr buckle in aluminium

    Hello!

    A few months ago I bought this Reichswehr buckle in aluminium (one piece) from a dealer.
    Has anybody else the same buckle? Or other aluminium variants?

    Christian,

    I have one in two piece aluminum w/a 1935 dated tab. I actually had two oft these at one time. Sold the 2nd one to Marc many years ago. Yours is the first one piece I have ever seen. A very scarce variant and in super condition. Will show photos later.

    Alright - I know that I am leading with my chin here, however, what is so special about this buckle ?

    Are aluminium Reichswehr rare ?

    Regards,

    David

    David,
    A valid question. Unless someone can show that the aluminum version of the Reichwehr buckle is out there in some numbers I can only say that in all my yerars of collecting I have only encountered two of this buckle and Christian's is the third and the first I've seen in one piece. I know the one I have is parade and probally should not have the tab which by the way is a Sieper 1935 dated one, but it looks like it has been on the buckle for a long time. The other parade alum. buckle I had did not have a tab.

    Nice buckle Bill, thanks for posting!

    The aluminium variant is indeed hard to find. I'm sure it was produced only for a short period in 1935/36.

    Hi All!

    I agree, Aluminium Reichsheer buckles are hard to find, but the die stamped example is rare as hens teeth!

    Like your buckle very much, Christian.

    Bill, I have a similar two-piecer and will post my one later for comparison (have still to take pictures).

    Regards,
    Guido

    Guido, et al,

    I certainly agree on the rarity of the die struck buckle. The two- piece ones are not so common either. I do have a question on the die struck buckle. How does one tell it is aluminum from a photo if the individual does not mention it as being alum.? The catch looks a bit different but only a very minor difference.

    The best to all of you,

    Bill
