    Default The Brain Buckle

    For the benefit of the forum, here are some clear images of the "pebbled" or "brain" buckle which and in my and others opinion, is erroneously referred to as pre 1945 penal or punishment related.

    In my opinion, the buckle is a post 1945 "neutral" and it is as simple as that.

    I think that this buckle first appeared in the 1970's and all and without exception were die struck steel with a silver grey paint. Originally seen without any markings and then, reappeared on the market with a B & N 43 stamping to the buckle lip.

    Jürgen, maybe this explanation will help you to understand how many buckle collectors are going ahead:

    As the most of all present buckle collectors have not experienced the years of WWII themselves, they prefer to use the following reliable sources:

    - period images with buckles in wear
    - period sales catalogues and price lists
    - official regulations from several institutions, like the RZM-Mitteilungsblatt, the Heeres-Verordnungsblatt, ...

    That's it!!

    Descriptions of WWII participants are also a source, but not a reliable source!!
    What is an over 60 years old memory of a WWII vet worth??
    You can use them usually as a first hint, nothing more, nothing less. If you intend to work precise, you'll have to confirm a vets description at least with one of the above mentioned sources.
    Before this confirmation your theory is just a claim.


    PS: To be honest, Jürgen, your images are of a dreadful quality!

    I have learned a lot about German buckles after I started this tread. I have stated that I’m not a buckle collector, nor and expert on the subject, and the verdict on Jurgens buckle I leave to the specialized collectors.
    I do think this tread has gone a little “off topic” now, and suggest that we split it in two parts. One tread for my LW buckle, and another for Jurgen’s penalty unit buckle.

    Best regards
