Hi Carl and many thanks I dont think you have to be a paid member to post pictures on this forum, its not like the WAF, the only guys that pay are ones that make a contribution for the upkeep of the forum, also my friend if you have 42 years worth of buckles I would love to see some of what you have and if you have rare pieces maybe all of us can learn something. In regards to "shootouts" as you called them I do not tolerate it on the buckle forum, we are here to learn and discuss so please Carl post what you have, I for one would love to see what treasures you have especially pre war nickel buckles, I have fallen in love with them, the quality is just fantastic
Great find Ben! Your buckle shows once again that we have still unknown variants out there and this keeps our hobby alive.
I think you are on the right track when comparing this piece with that particular Postschutz buckle wich was once in the collection of Marc V.!
Thats why I like this hobby my friend, always on the search for that elusive buckle or rare/unknown maker
A real rare variant you acquired for your collection there mate,
Hope your wife likes it as well
Great Peice with very good unworn detail with that variant catch, Congrats!!
