    Most likely old Lacquer that has taken on a gold looks. No reason a EM Luftwaffe buckle would have a true gold finish.

    Agreed-it's been lacquered or varnished some time in the past and it's toned to yellow with age.

    Am I right when I say that S.H. u. Co is a rare maker?

    I agree with the rest, the buckle is just aged, but a nice buckle In ref to being rare they dont come up for sale that often but would not class them as rare

    One of my LW buckles has a similar patina. Chalk it up to hard use and wax or some other leather treatment getting on the buckle. It gets yellow over time. Nice example - love the worn buckles that show genuine use! NH

    The maker might actually hurt the value. There are a lot of fakes with this mark, mostly Heer.
