Hi Ivan, to me this is an Aurich buckle, loom at the head and the slender ears, as to the the pin head maybe it was replaced at some point or a refurbished buckle?
I also came to the same Aurich conclusion yesterday, that was the closest match to me.
Thanks guys, yes Aurich is the closest match but this buckle is unmarked and I don't know any alu or steel Heer Aurich buckle unmarked and the eagle's head of this buckle is more proportionated that the little head of a typical Aurich buckle
I have an Aurich 41 Trop Heer buckle in my collection , tomorrow I will do and post some pics
The catch does look a bit like Ernst Schneider, maybe
interesting buckle ..........
can you make a close up from the lower riveting head ?
I also think that prongbar with web tab can be replaced .................
I'm searching for
special SA/NSKK/NSFK with maker marks

My thoughts are your buckle was first painted the same green as on the rivet head then at a later date was painted Tropical colour, you can see the lighter green paint under the Tropical in places if you study your photos, at this point i do not think the prong bar was replaced.

Thanks for your inputs
New pics, also pics of my Aurich marked buckle
My conclussions are:
-The closest maker is Aurich but the eagle's head is a little different ¿another Aurich die?
-The buckle is unmarked
-The green paint of the pinhead is over the tan paint, in hand i don't see traces of green paint under the tan paint, only bare metal or brown rust
-I think that the post prongs and web tab are original to this buckle
