    I have looked through my pics, the Nash book and Angolia book and I have not seen prongs like that on a crank buckle before, for me they have been replaced at some point.

    I don't disagree with that ,as it is a well used buckle I have no problem to it having had a repair in its working life.

    I see on another thread the same maker buckle is shown again no maker mark but going by the laurel design and the placement of the berries in the laurel one in the same. And the crank design is a good match.

    you have to be very lucky to get a mint alloy buckle after 70+years.

    Very true and this one would have seen upto 4 years service before the out break of war. To me a field repair adds to the history of a piece.

    I have now seen a few more early luft buckles with the same brass prongs with silvered finish and some on this forum, so just because it's not in a couple of ref books may be a bit early to say a later repair.I'm sure ref books don't hold all examples .
