    I have a crank catch with the leather makers stamp and the 1935 date. Not as nice as these two. The crank catch spins in the side holes.

    Looking more thru the previous link I posted.

    St. = Stab Headquarter (HQ)
    KG = Kampfgeschwader = Bomber Unit

    So, is K.II = KG 2 Holzhammer ? Perhaps another member can solve the remainder, or correct what I've posted

    Nice, as before the leather stamp is not a buckle maker. Very early Luftwaffe
