Interesting buckle. I know I have see that catch before. I think it was on a DLV buckle. Your might have been made when the DLV was becoming the Luftwaffe. They might have made a few nickel Luftwaffe buckles before the switch to aluminum. First one I can remember seeing.
All the best
That is a very unique early droop tail first time I have seen that type of catch but agree with Kirby let Ben weigh in. timothy
NIce buckle Ivan, to me the catch looks like a Assmann catch but a disfigured one. I have also seen another like it but cannot remember what it was on
The catch almost has the appearance of a piece of rod that was hand bent and flattened on the ends to repair one that was lost.... Excellent buckle in any circumstance!
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."

Thanks to all for your opinions
Markus, I have not received the buckle, you may be right and the metal can be aluminum, I will tell you when the buckle is at home
this is my today's fleamarket find. I would say the same maker.
BTW it's made from aluminium!
Yes, I have received my buckle and effectively as Markus said, it is made of aluminum, except the prongs and te post prongs sleeve
