Nice buckle with great pebbling .. The catch reminds me of "Aurich" in a way, but it looks original to the buckle when produced...
I'd rather be A "RaD Man than a Mad Man "
looks a v/nice one.
Interesting catch, Here is a steel Aurich with a similar catch. Your buckle must be a late production. All of my tabbed second pattern Luftwaffe are 38 or 39. I have several steel buckles with 40 dated tabs. I believe companies were aloud to use up their stock of aluminum.
Yes, similar to Aurich catchs and also similar to Wurster catchs but different catchs...I haven't doubts about the catch is original to the buckle.
Here's his army brother different catch though
Nice buckle René
Sweet dreams are made of steel*
Who am I to disagree?
