    Finding a buckle with such rare markings is what makes collecting HJ interesting. Like everyone else I love the buckle.

    this is an amazing and might I say rare buckle! This is only the 3rd example that I have ever seen or am aware of. This maker must have made very few of these and even fewer have survived. The marking is great and has all of what a collector turns for.. makers name, Maker code and a nice ges. gesch. marking!! We could aprox date this buckle as it was post M4 marking, but before the RZM banned the makers to mark their name or logo. Great find , and thank you for sharing.

    Nice buckle, especially the markings. Thanks for showing!
    Mayer & Wilhelm (not Meyer) from Stuttgart had number 69 for many years.
    They are still included in the Herstellungsvorschriften from 1938. In the
    Mitteilungsblatt der RZM, up through the end of 1944, this concern kept
    its permission!

    Wow, what a find. I know the high you're on right now, too bad it only last about a week, huh? And then you need another fix, lol! Yes, the markings are outstanding!!! I'm used to Heer buckles where you need a magnifier to see the markings, and sometimes there are simply none. This is obviously a steel buckle? I like the feel and solidity of a steel buckle, and the way they age.

    Were these chrome or nickel plated? I'm leaning towards chrome because it is still so shiny?
