    What do you think about this buckle?
    The eagle, catch, prongs looks fake to me, only the leather tab and the stitching appears to be original
    ????
    Opinions are welcome
    Best Regards

    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

    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
