    Question Luftwaffe Buckle ID Help

    Hi, guys. My friend was interested in purchasing this luft buckle and asked me for some help with it. I don't know hardly anything yet about luft buckles but I'm pretty certain it is original and looks like it has a fair amount of paint left on it. It's unmarked, though, and we were hoping to be able to identify the maker and place the buckle as far as if it's commonplace or a more scarce piece. I know there are many eagle variations with luft buckles, but I thought the style/design of this particular eagle's head might ring a bell with someone.

    Thanks for any help

    Thanks for the reply, Musektier. What about the buckle indicates this maker to you?

    Hello I think the details of the eagle and the catch make it a koller. I have one with a 1941 dated tab.
