Found the same buckle on a WAF thread and it was judged original by collectors who's opinions I usually trust. Most of the HJ buckles marked M4/42 have crank catches marked in the diamond and some are marked near the catch. Most likely a later version and less cost to produce than the crank catch
Thanks guys, I've edited my post. Then we shall have a burning love for this buckle

Who am I to disagree?

Very nice and quite original Aurich HJ buckle, look at the shortened catch and slender ears, so typical of this maker, nothing wrong with it
Thought I had one, here is another for example
