    The second buckle I have is a Hillenbrand and Broer. Supposedly.

    What do you folks think? Is there a book with illustrations you would recommend on this topic? I need some serious instruction and everyone here makes it seem so easy.

    A nice and not so common buckle
    I own the book "German belt buckles 1845-1945" by Peter Nash. It's pretty good but I'll have to buy the Angolia book too I think.
    "Belt buckles & brocades of the Third Reich": John R Angolia

    But this forum and the buckle maniacs here have helped me very,very much. Study the forum hard and use the search engine.

    Here is mine:

    Retsiger, Books are good a can be a useful tool... But be aware that some are outdated and have mis-information.. I would suggest the "Search Engine" tool as a supplement in judging yourself as to authenticity and when in doubt ask here first if possible to avoid $$$ down the well.. Their are subtle differences between your posted buckle and Wewelsburg's G

    It Happens... Most forum members have been taken for a "Ride" if you will at one point or another in their aspiration of a "Relic"... This should not happen if one studies in his / her ( P.C. ) "Theme or Realm" of interests.. The exception is of course 'The S.S." if one wants to obtain these particular pieces it is a "Minefield" IMO that takes many, many years of distinction and prowess with great attention to detail.. G

    This borders on the cruel and unusual. can you briefly give me some pointers on the differences, when you can spare some time. Think of me as Schultz...I know nothing.

    The die process could have been different when during construction.. Although the one buckle has an indented maker mark and the other is raised... The prongs look similar and it may be the photos IMO

    Excellent attention to detail. Raised vs indented marks. It does seem like that maker's mark would have to be in the actual die.
