    Default Luftwaffe 2nd Model Buckle & Belt - Opinions?

    Hi Everyone,
    Bought this Luftwaffe buckle & belt today. Could members give their opinions if original, the maker's mark Dr F & Co is on the buckle, but I've been unable to find another on the net, from this maker too compare it with. The pin has been repaired with a copper pin. The belt is stamped - maker name illegible 1936 Erfurt
    Cheers

    Alec, the buckle is original though very worn, the square ears are not as square as usual due to wear. The belt hook is made by Richard Seiper, that is his early marking

    Hi Ben,
    Thanks for your post, and the belt hook makers Richard Seiper name. As you say the buckle is very worn, I did suspect it to be original, to be honest I don't know why I bought it, I noticed the copper pin repair and the worn detail on the buckle front, for some reason it didn't register (normally I don't touch well worn & repaired items) nevertheless this one I did, so I've to live with it.
    Best Wishes

    [Hello

    Our friend ben is right.(he always is).
    Probably dated 42 (no leather tab).The belt should be on a aluminium buckle, but You see often those combination.
    Everything in order.
    I like those buckles which have seen action and has the
    "been there" look.

    Congrats and take care

    Rudi
