Z just to help us all I have found two known original belonging to David North and Markus and joined them for comparison
I have never actually owned one of these but there are some things I like about yours and some things make me suspicious, the prongs look like they could be early Overhoff prongs but its hard to tell from the angle of the rear picture, its not square on. Look at the catch on the buckle you posted, its smaller than the other two so again does that make it fake or just another variation? Also the roundel has most of the silver wash on compared to the rest of the buckle, if you look at the other two buckles they seem to have less wear but the wash is not as good as the buckle you posted. These are my opinion, like I said I have never owned one. Wait for Markus or David to comment it will be interesting to see what they say
Yes, thank you Ben. Will wait and see.
I just pulled up an old thread with a lot of FAD buckles for comparison.
Thanks Markus, it did not seem right having all that wash left on it, just confirmed my suspicions
