    Default Maurer Police Belt Buckle. Real or fake?

    Hello, first time posting (sorry if in wrong thread), I have a belt buckle here the authenticity of which I am dubious. I have been snooping around on the forum but could not definitively decide. In particular the circular mark on the back of the buckle is something I have not seen elsewhere, what do you think?

    Hello ADent, and welcome to the Forum. Your buckle is a very nice, original Mauer buckle. The stamping = JMO ( Julius Maurer, Oberstein) on the back of the buckle is an additional maker mark. Here is a thread you can review with an JMO buckle I have, and another thread with a buckle more like yours:

    I would buy it in a heartbeat at the right price.

    Hi weller,
    Thanks for the fast response. I saw your belt (it's a real beauty) while doing some research. Any idea what it'd be worth? I am not selling it, it is part of a museum collection and I'd like to know for our own records.

    Thanks

    Hard to say on value; prices are so different depending on where you purchase...price range $175-200 USD (+) or (-) $25.

    Thanks, it's always a relief to verify artifacts are real (we just tossed a bunch of fake ghetto/concentration camp armbands) and I really did not want to have to bin such a nice buckle lol
