So lets get this right, the buckle is steel, with brass over the steel with a nickel finish?
Yes Ben. Steel buckle covered with brass and Nickel.
Mmmm interesting, @ Markus what indication on the buckle told you that Markus?
i see three different face colors on the buckle . Looks sharp to the edge from the runic . There you see the Nickel plating .
On the higher flat field of runnic you see the color variation from steel and a little rest of the brass coating .
I know often that's nickel platet steel buckles have a primer coating from brass ..........
Look on the picture :
Green > nickel plating
blue > steel
red > brass

Cheers Markus, so would that be steel showing through on the leading edge of the buckle?
