    Hey gang....This one showed up yesterday and I've been after one of these for some time! I'd like to thank a fellow collector for his help in ID'ing the type of metal used.

    Pierre mentioned that it is an alloy called Maillechort (French) It's a combination of nickel, zinc and brass. This type of "metal" is named after the two men who invented it: Maillet and Chorier in 1819, both are from France.
    Thanks so much Pierre! That info is awesome!


    These are most often found in gold but have also been observed in this type of silver.
    Hard to tell for sure but I also get the feeling there was a gold gilt on it at one time....looks that way in the crevasses of the buckle but I doubt it as there is nothing around the letters. No biggy - now I'll just have to keep hunting for one in gold! hahahaha

    Used during the Weimar and for a few years into the TR until they were replaced with the standard police buckle with large swastika.

    Quite happy with this one. Putting up some shots....

    Cheers!
