    Thanks alot David. This will fit well into my display when finished. Any idea as to value in this condition?

    Value is expensive....I've seen these go for anywhere between $450 - $700 or even more on some dealer sites. Sorry I can't nail down a specific price....but the range is all over the place with buckles like this one. I think it comes down to a collector wanting one of these bad enough.

    Cheers!

    Nice, thats kind of what I was expecting. I dont plan on selling anything that I have. Most came from my step-father's father. So im hoping to make a nice display and give it all back to him as a gift. I dont think he know's any values on any of it, so the more info/history/value I have on each piece the better my display will turn out.

    Hello,

    I couldn't avoid to jump in as the argument is very interesting.
    I agree with positive comments on the HJ officer posted to start this thread : it's a 100 % original pre-May 1945 artifact IMO.
    The nice repros surfacing the market have distinct features and David has rightly pointed out what is present on original buckles.
    I do not comment about value, but the buckle is for sure desiderable for any collector interested in them.
    I post mine for comparison

    Best

    Hello,

    looking at the yellowish area under magnification, you'll notice the gold is under the silver : that's a brass silvered buckle .

    I think they used brass to help the nickel go onto the buckle easier
