    Default Yet another M4/38 Buckle - Real? My first buckle purchase!

    Hello Gents,

    First off, thanks for all of the great info. here on belt buckles. I am a bit overwhelmed at the amount of buckles and the sheer amount of fakes/reproductions out there! I'm trying to do my homework by studying the posts here to try and tell what's real and what isn't. I also just ordered a copy of the Nash book and I plan on picking up another book or two in the near future.

    I've seen this buckle at a semi-local antique shop for awhile. After checking out this website, I took the plunge and bought it - my first buckle. What do you think? With the wear on it and the look of the prongs and ear, I think it is real.

    I have my eye on an unmarked, pebble finish army enlisted man's buckle next. Better get to looking at more photos.

    Thanks for looking!

    This looks fine to me but wait for those "in the know".

    My advice however is to post before you buy (hint: the one you have your eye on). That said, I commend you for doing your research first. The correct approach!

    Both the Nash and Angolia books are very good but do have incorrect info in them, you will find the most up date information on buckles on forums
