    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Thanks my friend , i thought that there was probably no way of improving it's condition.

    Even though it is very rusty and only just visable as an SS Buckle the knowledge of it@s origin makes it a unique piece,

    regards

    Hi Paul


    There are two ways to clean it, the fast way and the slow way...

    Fast way: Try to peal of most of the rust parts with your hand (don't use metal tools!!!). Then carefully brush it with a mix of 10% of rust remover and 90% of water. Be very carefull with this as when you use to much rust remover your belt will be eaten away before your eyes. I'am not joking, I've seen it happen with IAB's before...

    Slow way: Let nature do it's course. Rust isn't metal, it's a reaction between metal and water. Meaning most will go away on itself if you have patience. When metal heats, it enlarges, thus it pushes the rust of. If you have a place where it's very hot in your house I advice you lay the belt there. Then check on it every two months to peal off the rust that has come lose with your hand. Do this for as much time it requires...
    Don't combine method one with method two, you won't like the result...

    I've seen that buckle and two ways is:
    1) throw it to garbage
    2) keep as is, due of historically interest
