    This belt buckle Reichswehr Marine is made of brass and brass buckles Army no longer manufactured during this period. May be original or a fake postwar. I want to know the opinion of experienced collectors.

    I have had several Reichsheer buckles with this type construction so I can't see any reason there shouldn't be a Marine buckle with the same construction. Here is a smooth field Reichsheer buckle I got last fall.

    The extremely fine detailing and background certainly looks authentic to me, but Reichswehr buckles are not my main field, of course.

    Hello,

    this buckle looks good to me also, but it is certainly a private purchase one, as all the regulations buckle that i have seen were made of brass struck in one piece, not with a soldered medaillon

    Anyway, regulation or private purchase Reichsmarine buckles are scarce and very desirable items

    After looking through my archive pics I cannot find a buckle like this, but I like the the above theory that it is a private purchase piece

    I am not saying 100% that it is a suspect buckle but in all my years of collecting I have nevered considered a two piece brass Reichsheer buckle to be ligit. There are a number of them floating around out there some w/3 solder points( a easy spot as fake ) and some w/only 2 solder points. I do agree that the box looks good but I still would stay away from it. All the Reichsheer Marine buckjles that I know of are one piece brass, smooth faced box. Also the steel smooth faced box one piece buckles are controversial from the standpoint of what they are. Some say first production and others (myself included ) say land based Marine i.e the TR version of Coastal artillery. The nickel/silver smooth faced two piece buckle shown is a very tough parade buckle to find. In any event an interesting topic.
