    The lack of curvature seems different than most examples..JMO

    It looks like the catch is in the wrong position and why is it so much darker than the buckle ??

    You do have to be very careful with these. They are part of a new generation of fakes that are very well made. Originals should have the prong bar attached to the buckle. Someone could have removed the sleeve and prongs but the prongs were one of the ways to tell the fakes. Here is my example and it has the silver frosted finish.

    Hello All,

    I have been on a hiatus from collecting for a good while now so take my 2 cents here in stride. As stated, in the last few years we've become aware of these fake officer buckles with their characteristic crudely cut prongs. With respect to the DRK flavor of these fakes, I have not as of yet seen one with the "Ges Gesch 2" marking...only the "Ges Gesch 1" as shown and referenced in this thread. Has anyone seen an example of the former? Attached for comparison are a couple additional photos of an original Ges Gesch 1 marked example from my collection.

    Best Wishes,
    Adam

    I got my first DRK-officers buckle with GES.GESCH and the number 2
    in a double circle in 1976. There was no doubt about it, it was a fake,
    as I knew from whom I got it!
    The front photo you can see in the "first" Angolia, page 175. The prongs
    bar should be installed at that side.......Often it is said, it is correct for the
    brocade. A brocade was not mentioned in any of the official regulations,
    but anyway in use (a photo is shown in my gorget-book, but one cannot
    see details. The photo is also shown here of course). Angolia is wrong! This
    is an extremely rare photo. It took me about 35 years to proof the contrary
    from the regulations!

    the German police (three stripes):

    I do not like any of them with the crude markings at the reverse and
    lack of detail in the front. Some I have seen are very questionable!!
