    Joe, I do not recall ever seeing a steel Seiper HJ buckle? Also I am not keen on the ears, or the prongs on the buckle shown and to be honest mate my gut feeling is that it is a fake but I will have a search around and make sure

    Searching around I am finding a lot of aluminum m4/38 buckles but I haven't found any other steel ones. The buckle looks decent but why take a risk if your not 100 sure it is good.

    this buckle is an original, although in a little rough condition, this is a seldom seen buckle in painted steel. There were other makers that were far more prolific at this time that were making the majority of what we see in painted steel , notably CTD, JFS and Dr. Frank.. these three makers seemed to make a majority of the painted steel buckles..
    I have an example of this exact buckle in near mint condition, and will be happy to post it if the members would like to see it.
    thanks for sharing Chad

    Well I ordered the buckle and will get a closer look soon. Still a little concerned though after reading in my Nash Book page 305 about some recent steel repros with short ears.

    At the price you paid Joe, not a bad buckle really, and in fact it may look rough but a rare buckle in all accounts, I have never seen one!
