i sold mine at a flea sale 35,, hard to move
The buckle is post war Feuerwehr for the state of Niedersachsen. Apparently worn until the 1970ies. On German ebay you can get them all the time. Don't overpay.
Best regards, Kurt
Yes...these were used pre-war AND post-war. The construction is usually the best way to know wether or not they were manufactured before/during the war or afterwards. This example shown appears to be modern construction.
These buckles certainly have a place in every German buckle collection - it's just a matter of making sure one does not pay too much for it.
Thank you guys for all the great info.
I guess I will have to pass on this one.
