    Perhaps quite rare and still, quite interesting.

    The most common "declaration" FAD is "Fur Volk und Heimat".

    To see one with " Nichts Als Deutschland" is and in my opinion, extremely rare to say the least.

    Not really surprised Ben and until last year, you and I both!

    The buckle does appear in a few of the reference books, although as I mentioned to Nick, rare to say the least. Over the years, I have seen countless numbers of the "Fur Volk und Heimat" FAD. Over the same period of collecting, I have seen 2 "Nichts Als Deutschland" FAD buckles.

    An indication of just how rare these are.

    Regards,

    David,

    "WOW". A very, very tough buckle to find. I would also say that "common" on the "Fur Volk ......" is a bit of a misnomer as they are also tough to find. Weitze had, has one of the "Nichts" buckles on his site. I believe it came from Marc but not sure. In either case it was selling for I believe 850 Euro. a lot of money a few months ago but better now. I will post photos of my FAD's as well a few new buckles as soon as I get my computer de-bugged.
    A great discussion on the book /eagle FAD. Never bothered with these because of the number of fakes out there some good, some not so good. Now I can tell the difference.

    Regards to all,

    Bill

    Thankyou for all the kind remarks chaps and which are greatly appreciated. Even though I say so myself, it is quite a special FAD.

    Bill - in relation to the infamous "eagle and swastika" FAD, just a reminder that "...the earlier response about identifying the originals and the fakes is again a PERSONAL OPINION and it really needs more testing, as it (I) could be hopelessly wrong...".

    Regards,

    David
