    Just picked this up at the gun show in Louisville KY USA today. Now, as a very inexperienced collector it is probably not a good idea to do this, but the dealer said it was real! Of course the dealer is never wrong . . .

    I did find a fake SS EM buckle, very bad fake that I could tell because of what I have learned here.

    Hi Rodger, firstly pleased to see you are using the forum as a research tool, we have vast amounts of info on here and good to see you are learning from it your Lufte buckle is genuine enough, the prongs have been damaged and on the front has it been sprayed silver or is that just wear?

    Thank you, Ben. I appreciate your input. The front does not appear to have been sprayed with anything, but it is very worn.

    Here is a picture:

    There is paint residue in the crevices and around the wreath, also some around the rivet hole on the bottom (not shown).
