    Good or Bad buckles?

    Luftwaffe: Couldn't find any maker marings. Leather is marked with a circle containing wording, "DANS (and then a word I cant make out)" Below that "MENDEN/W (?)" Center of circle is dated 1941.

    Heer: Maker marked "Dr. F & Co 1940" The marking on the leather is pretty much rubbed away. I can't make out any words, but it is dated 1940 in the circle.

    Need better pics let me know.

    As always, thanks for the advice!

    Both look good to me. Age, paint, wear - the same with the tabs.........

    How much are they apiece ?
    Regards,

    Both buckles are good, the Luftewaffe is Dransfeld & Co Menden, the catch is quite distinct as are the ears

    It was, early June. These came from the same veteran lot as the two wound badges I posted in the other forum. There were a bunch of items from the veteran (it was an auction) I just simply ran out of money, as so often happens, lol.
