    Thise question goes probably to Ben Evans; and as I didn't wanted to spoil the threath" Non M4 makers (Others) " I just opened thise one.
    A while ago a guy offered me a Belgian made WH buckel, but as I could not find any difference with others I passed on it.
    I know some where made in Belgium for the simple reason that I cleared that factory and sold, with out loocking at them properly..., all the III Reich die's it still retained.
    What is the difference if they are not marked or taged?
    I'll try to find the pictures who where send to me at the time.

    Hi Stuka, the Reitz factory did indeed make buckles. These were normally made out of zinc and were quite uniquie to look at, the had a very large pin head and the catch looked like a piece of wire, I will try and find a picture for you to look at or can you post any pics of the buckle in question?

    Ok , I have done my research on Reitz ...but as I undertand it : they only made uniforms in Merxsem an Gent, but no metal objects.
    As I know a bit when it comes to metal objects made in Belgium, thise could be Fonson, one I can not recall his name, or Indian Caps.
