    Buckle looks original to me, possibly a Assmann made buckle but looks like its been chromed, hard to tell from the pics, belt is also original

    Thanks. I've read about an early variant, like this, with a silver coating/no pebbles outside of the laurels, but have
    only seen one elsewhere online.

    Look at the rear of the buckle, it should tell you its original colour, this is a steel one so I doubt it is early, they were aluminium until 1940 then they changed to steel. I will find a picture of an Assmann steel luftwaffe buckle, have a look at the catch and see if they are the same

    looks like it may be good but always best to look at the piece in person !!

    Yes it does. And yes, it is steel. I will be checking it out very shortly and will post better pictures ASAP. Thanks for your help!

    Picked up the belt today and took a few better pictures. The catch does look like the Assmann above. The belt is named and in great shape but does't have a makermark. One end says E38.
