Coastal Artillery ?

Article about: Here is a belt buckle I've had for a while. It's probably a repaint. It is sort of blue grey in colour that looks more green in the photos. Someone told me it was coastal artillery. Not sure

    I've had this buckle since the 60's and was told it was a Coastal Artillery buckle. Got it as part trade from a collector who was getting out of collecting German items ($25 tunics and $15 helmets were too much for him). Anyway, the color is a dark blue. I thought it was good, but after looking at the posts for fakes, I'm having second thoughts about the eagle's head.

    Nothing wrong with this buckle, it is in fact a late war Overhoff, you do not find many of these around, in fact for me this is a great thread, a late war Assmann and Overhoff, both buckles quite hard to find

    Thanks. I've gotten so paranoid with my buckles after looking at the posts on fakes that I question a lot of them. Some I picked up in Germany in teh 80 at the ASMIT shows, some at the German "gun shows" and some I was sure were restrikes or fakes when I bought them but I needed to fill a gap in the collection. I've since moved on to other collectables, but I still enjoy going through the box of buckles.
