    To kick off these are crank buckles taken from the forum, this first one is a good start in the fact that it is a known maker, Richard Seiper, please note look at the eagle on the obverse of the buckle, the open beak and what I call a cap on the eagles head. (note on this buckle the catch has been distorted and stretched due to wear)

    Another unmarked crank Luft buckle, with this one however look at the prongs, early aluminium buckle with steel prongs. With the prongs see how they are reversed, very typical of early Assmann buckles, Also look at the crank catch itself and compare it to the known original Assmann one so could we say this buckle is Assmann made?
