I have not actually seen many of these buckles but it is quite genuine and made by one of the biggest buckle makers around at the time. The buckle is in fact made by Assmann, you do not see many combat Heer buckles made by this maker for some reason, very interesting and hard to find buckle
Ben, I greatly appreciate your expertise and willingness to educate an unlearned collector. I have been studying your sticky threads on buckles but was unable to know how you identify it as an Assmann made buckle. Is there a certain characteristic that identifies it as such?
Hi All! (my first post here )
Ben is absolutely right! The buckle was made by Assmann and I like the very nice condition of this piece! I have attached my example for comparison!
BTW: Hello to all known and unknown buckle guys!
I paid $70.00 for the piece. Was that about right or too much?
As Guido stated a very good price @ $70
Hello Guido how are you? Long time no hear my friend, hope this message finds you fit and well and alles inordnung
Thanks for asking Ben, alles ist prima!
Nice to meet so much old fellow collectors in this forum. Seems to be an interesting place here!
