    Default 2x Luftwaffe Koppelschlösser - 1x Tropical Luftwaffe - Opinions Welcome

    Hello Everyone,
    Here are the two remaining buckles & belts I bought last week. Hope members have forbearance with me, don't like to hog the buckle forum, normally I buy the odd buckle now and again. The seller has a decent attitude, if they turn out to be fakes, he will take them back, obviously I try to authenticate the piece as quickly as possible, don't like to give them back to him three months later. I do look through the fake databases before posting, if there's no description what's wrong with the piece, do have difficulty recognizing it.
    Both buckles are steel, top one I think is normal Luftwaffe buckle still with a lot of colour and MM what I take to be from Overhoff, the leather belt its on has no markings. The lower buckle has a tan colour and MM = Aa39 (read this with magnifying glass, the photo I know is not good enough to see this) I take this to be the Assman mark. The buckle is on a web belt with length size 95 on it. I think this one is a tropical buckle & belt. What do members think ? opinion are welcome.
    Regards
    Alec

    What is it that gives them away as fake?

    The eagle's head is a giveaway (too "pointy") as are the feet of the belt catch (raised). The tail on the eagle is also not correct. Hope that helps some.

    Thank you, I did think that the grey 'eagle' looked more like a crow anyway. Interesting about the feet of the catch, I will compare with my ground dug original tonight.

    Cheers
