    Question Aluminum Luftwaffe Buckle and Heer Buckle, Marked with Belt Keeper: Authentic/good deal?

    Hi, everyone. I saw these two other buckles and was curious what you all thought. I know these Luftwaffe buckles get copied often so I wasn't sure about it. It's aluminum, two-pieced and selling for $95 USD. Is the 2-piece, aluminum construction usually inidcative of earlier buckles? The 2nd Heer buckle (going for $75 USD) looks good to me. I think it's probably a good deal as it has some of what I believe is the original paint left on it. I don't think the leather keeper is original, however. Looks post-war, non-military and doesn't have any markings.

    Any advice or opinions would be great!
    Thanks,
    Adam

    I agree with you on the 2nd Heer Buckle, it looks good to me.

    Adam both buckles are good, is the Lufte aluminium or Zinc? You are quite correct about the tab, probably post war applied but not original to the buckle

    Thanks for the help, guys and for the reference Ben. I think the Luftwaffe buckle is actually zinc even though it was advertised as aluminum. Is zinc okay for this buckle and is one material more desirable than the other?

    Thanks,
    Adam
