HJ buckle for review
I'd like to have opinions about this HJ buckle on Collector's Guild:
The Collector's Guild
I think this is a little "marking" variation: RZM is smaller and "9" is more round then the more common Assmann variant with the same C catch, nickleled steel and same marking buckle.
Am I right?

Its a nice original buckle, here is another for comparison
Here is the reverse of mine for another comparison...
I knew Ben and Jeff would chime in.. Go and get it !! G-Man
I'd rather be A "RaD Man than a Mad Man "
Thanks guys! Yes the buckle is original indeed; so this is a different die for the same buckle as shown by Markus in the pinned thread HJ producers, if I am not wrong at page 2. Same buckle, same characteristics, different marking.
All the best!
Hi Joda - my example and the buckle you posted for review are very much alike. And I agree, the shape of the 9 is different than Markus' example on page #2.
nice Assmann nickel over steel buckle. With some variation marking .
But one of more known by Assmann .
Think Assmann was a top maker who had a lot of stamping Tools ......
