    Yup....Nothing wrong with both buckles. The catch on the left is fine; in fact, a harder to find variant made by Assman as Pierre mentioned. Here's my example for the sake of reference.

    Assmann was the only maker to use this type of catch. Other types of catches include the crank catch - but that style was used by other makers too.

    Cheers!

    Hi Rob, appreciate you showing your example and I wonder if these are late war, as yours is the third I've seen in excellent condition. Thanks, Hal

    Hi Hal! The late war question is a good one! I'm thinking this actually isn't a late war issued piece. These alum. type buckles were produced from 1936-1940. Assmann was known for trying a variety of catches and constructions. After 1940 - alum. buckle production was greatly reduced.
    Late war HJ's are known as the potmetal type....Here's my late war buckle...You can see there's a considerable drop in the quality.

    Cheers!

    The "crimp" or "D-ring" catch does seem to be exclusive to Assmann and in slightly various forms and configurations.

    Perhaps the most commonly seen is on the well documented HJ.

    It does however manifest itself on the HJ, DAF and DRB to name but three.

    Here are images of the DAF-Werkschar variant.

    Regards,

    David

    David, my friend - THAT is a killer buckle! Love the German patent mark . I've never seen one of those before right next to the "A". Great buckle!

    Thanks for posting!
