It looks fake to me, and the tab is recently stitched. Maybe a copy of the Assman eagle?
.. Weller (Jeff) recently posted a real example..This one has a catch and
prongs way off IMO.. Wait for other opinions...G
Thanks Erno, I could be wrong, but that does not worry me, but what does worry me is the rest of the buckle
Gwar and harryamb2 thanks, I agree with you,
Also the ears of the buckle appears to be bended
Doesn't look like the one Weller posted. Is there a trademark under the prong bar? The tab does look good. It would be a nice addition to Weller's buckle. The catch is strange for an aluminum buckle. Hate the sharp cut of the prongs.
Kirby, my thoughts exactly.. If , perhaps the maker mark exsists I stand corrected.. Hope all is going great with you.. G
Haven't bought a buckle in two months. Starting to go into withdrawal. Our local Militaria show is 13 days away. Kirby
I surely would go mad !! I hope soon though you will surprise us with many good finds.. Stay diligent....G
A buddy emailed me his latest buckle last week. He has been trying to buy this buckle for over 10 years and now the guys 80 and he is starting to let some stuff go.
Sorry for going off topic.
