    i also dont like the uneven finishing of the buckle prongs,,,i like to see them turned to a point evenly on both;not the haphazard clipping the way these two look...i say bad,,,

    Hi again-yep Prongs funny?as I said also the Makers Stamp?upside down and (as a Native german) dont like "Bruder Schneider"Wien..its just wrong german Spelling if look at other Stamps:the clear like "two Dots over the vowels"that what first"hit me" looking at it? The german Regulations Controls were not happy with that-maybe another Idea-this was rejectet by the Controls and never issued?? Any more Ideas?best Jurgen

    Gents, again just a fly in the ointment, the JFS Heer is 100000% original, just in mint condition as is the Lufte Bruder Scheider Lufte that started the thread. Just a point to remember not all buckles were made to one standard, prongs for example, there are the famous OLT prongs that were put on alot of fake SS buckles however Berge & Nolte buckle prongs look like the OLT prongs! (I am at work so will show examples later) Look at the belt buckle and characteristics thread if you are not very experienced, it may teach you a couple of tips

    Ok guys, if you do a little search on the internet you will find plenty of Bruder Schneider buckles similar to mine, and they are all genuine.
    And Jurgen, German regulation and control over fieldgear production is more a “myth” than reality. If you have been a collector for a while you should now that?

    Best regards Arvid

    Thanks Jurgen. I have many leather items from WW2 looking like “new”, and I will show it to you later. The tab on my Luftwaffe buckle does not smell leather, and the tread do not glow under black light. Always the first thing I check

    Best regards
