    Default Help ID Luftwaffe buckle?

    Hello all!
    I just got this Luftwaffe buckle today, and it does not appear to be maker marked. The leather tab has a central date stamp of 1940, and the name looks like it starts with a 'B' and ends in either 'R' or 'P' 'AG', and is made in WIEN.
    Any help in identifying this maker would be greatly appreciated.

    Maker is Bruder Schneider Wein, there are quite a few makers from Wein but most are quite rare, also look at the size of them ears, massive, typical of Bruder Schneider

    Thank you both. After militarymanias' post, I went to the M4 makers thread and pulled up the pictures that Ben sent. Sure enough, when held just right you can faintly make out enough to see that the word '..EIDER AG' is present. Now thanks to you it is identified. I am thrilled to get it.
    I also got a Heer B&N 43 which will match my Luftwaffe B&N 43. This buckle stuff is addictive!
