Interesting, i've never seen a 2 piece Polizei buckle made from 2 different metals.
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Very strange buckle, the box to me looks like an original one probably made by Assmann, the police roundel is strange!! It fits really well on the box, looks at the four connection tabs to the rear but the roundel its self to me looks too clean, no remains of wash on it, looks clincal (if thats makes sense) strange buckle for me to be honest, not really seen one like it, it will be interesting to see what the other experienced collectors think of it, it has me thinking to be honest, the jury is out for the moment in time lol
I like it.
Now Ben's thoughts on the Assmann connection is interesting. Take a look at the zinc roundal and then compare with a late war Assmann made SS cap skull. Both exhibit this same "lined" or streaked look to the finish which is quite distinctive.
Thats interesting to know Ade, is there any pics around for a comparison?
Thinking on could be they have re used an earlier two piece box and attached a late war Police roundel to it?
Hi Ben, there are some in the SS cap insignia forum.
Cheers mucker, just off to the gym I will have a neb when I get back
