The stitching is certainly new. I don't think these would have been produced then anyway?
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
The leather is artificially aged, I'm 100% on that, a Canadian web-site were selling these leather tabs a few years back
Ok , thanks!
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
I dont like it, WW2 tab on a WW1 buckle, metal too dark stitching looks too dark, if you go any further get better pics, especially of the rear!
Looks like the tab has been added to increase the value of the buckle, the dark cotton could be original but strange that there is a Prussian buckle with Dransfled 1938 tab!!!
