    Hi Ben,
    Here's 2 more pictures of the prongs as requested. I just don't like it but will go with your opinion as you know your buckles.

    I wouldn't expect to see those prongs on a M16 steel Prussian. The prongs themself I'm ok with, but I would say they have been replaced, as they are more typical of an M95. The prong shroud should have a seam in it, not always easy to see though..

    So D, in all, we agree on the buckle box being original, its just the prongs and if they are original to the buckle or replacements

    The buckle looks original. I don't recall ever seeing a steel buckle with brass prongs. At the start of the war with the massive amount of men entering the Army I could see companies using up old stock to meet demands.
