    Agree, I will admit I paid more than usual for mine because "I just had to have it". It's very nice. I can post pics if you want to compare.

    Ja, post pics, I'd like to see what it looks like without flash, etc. You guys are right, I can see some wear on the eagle for sure, even with the crappy pic. Well, I'll see if he'll listen to reason... but I have my doubts. He said it's going up in value all the time (as we speak even! ;-), so his not selling it now is in his favor ;-( If he waits long enough, one day it will be worth $350... but then he'll want $700 for it ;-)

    The G man is correct, in value the buckle is worth $175-225 in a private sale, if you really like the buckle then the price does not really matter. For example many years ago I paid $250 for this buckle made by Carl Baimberger, at the time I had never seen the maker and to this day its the only buckle I have seen by this maker, very worn and not in great condition at the time worth $125-150 but for me and my Heer collection I would have paid more. So in all IMO buckles are what you want or need for a collection

    This is a $125-175 buckle. Why waste time with the guy. There are dozens of dealers were you can get a similar buckle and not have to deal with this.

    Agree with Kirby. If you just want to add a tabbed aluminum Luft buckle they are everywhere. Finding a Wiedmann is a different story, but this seller is not worth the trouble.

    Pics not the best but an original buckle, who is the makers mark on the tab? Cannot quite read it. And at $350 I think he is on crack!!!!!
    Hi
    Wiedmann isn't so often seen.
    But this is not a drop tail aigle.
    Overhere, it would be between 120---180.
    Take care
