Article about: I picked up a few things at a local gun show the other day. This was one of the items. I purchased one of these at a show a number of years ago that was de-Nazified, I regretted it and have

    Nice early buckle, the maker on the tab did not make the buckle. Very nice find IMO
    Thanks Ben!
    Yes, that is why I looked the buckle over carefully for a makers mark.

    Nice buckle there Ralph. Here's my example and only a leather maker stamp like yours.

    The "Wings" resemble Assman and Klein & Quenzer early Luft droptails... But... Assman did make a crank catch and to my knowledge KuQ did not... By the beak and eyes there is a reverse "Nike" Swoosh if you will.
    Also, in the pebbled field around the bird their are pronounced markings ( on yours ) that are absent or non existent any more on a few examples like this .. These are just my observations... Very interesting buckle, G

    Turning into a good thread. How many companies used this type catch? Here is a similar buckle but the catch is loose and will spin in the side holes.

    Yes "Unknown" as to certainty... But based on traits of the "Ludenscheid" makers... If indeed these were manufactured in Ludenscheid..
    Sort of like Private purchase buckles in my opinion... The PPB did have their own ( In certain instances ) tell tale signs... This is just my opinion of course... We must remember.. Buckle manufacturers ( It is alleged ) traded stock back and forth depending on supply and demand and who could produce with the materials at hand... Again this is conjecture on my point.. This actually has been an interesting thread.. G
