    Default Imperial buckles?

    Hi guys,

    I've got two Imperial buckles, just wondering if they look ok? I feel that they are ok but have noticed that the lettering is different on one of them, also one of them has a break in the outer "rope" of the centre piece. This one also has prongs welded straight onto the bar?

    Thoughts? Different makers, one good, one fake?

    Cheers,
    Lenny

    They look like good ww1 steel 1915 to 1918 buckles missing fieldgrau paint one has traces of it. I would think OK might let some of the buckle experts weigh in. I have steel field grau model with same type of catch. timothy

    Cheers guys, they came in cheap so was happy. I just wondered when I saw a break in the "rope" as it were.

    Oops, sorry Ben, missed the imperial buckles forum, can you move this post?

    Hi Lenny, nice original buckles. The break in the rope looks like a die fault to me. Could be damaged in use. A closer pic would help, Cheers, Richard.

    Here's a close up of break in rope, does seem like a die fault?

    I had missed that as it was sort of hidden away, the title of this forum is 1900-1945 so shouldn't the Imperial Buckle thread be in here, keep it all together? Just a thought...

    Yeah, it's a die fault.

    You've got a point about the dates. But many of the Imperial buckles are pre 1900. Some back as far as 1847.

    The thread should be left in the Imperial forum as it sits better there.

    It may be a better idea to re date the WW2 Buckle Forum as from 1919 to 1945 so that it avoids the Imperial era,

    Cheers,

    Richard.
