Kriegsmarine brass buckle facke ?
It is made of brass(copper) buckles seem original at first glance but I think navy mark was added later.
It could be a copper buckle infantry marking navy? Buckles for Kriegsmarine know they are made of aluminum and not brass.
Kriegsmarine or a Waffen brass buckles do not know to exist at ww2 although I have seen one but I can not be original.
I think it is a fake but want and opinions of experienced collectors.
Thanks collectors and administrators!

It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
