    Default R.L.B. - Schloß mit Auflage - Original and Fake

    There has for some years now been a clear awareness towards a composite type metal buckle which often appears on the various auction sites, invariably described as "Diplomatic", "DLV", "RLB", et al. The buckle displays a DLV/RLB type of eagle, however with the interesting feature where the roundel is attached to the box by 4 fold over tabs.

    We all know that this is fake.

    It is however not a fantasy item per se, as an original RLB (zinc type metal with a silver painted obverse) and where the roundel is attached by 4 fold over tabs, is documented.

    Overhoff & Cie catalogue, "RLB Schloß mit Auflage. Art. 0694/45 mm".

    Attached are images of the original and the fake.

    Regards,

    David

    this is a not so often seen variation .

    Most are made at one piece aluminium or nickel silver ........

    I knew that you held an example Markus and super that you have shown it. A quite rare buckle in my opinion and essentially, little known.

    How do you manage your images as big as this?

    Regards,

    David
