    Default SA Belt Buckle - Genuine?

    Hi everyone, Here's my SA belt buckle which I've had for a while. Unfortunately there aren't any maker's marks etc. (apparently not all have maker's marks, pre RZM?) but it is in great condition, separate front piece construction and has scratches/evidence of 'usage' in all the typical places. What are your thoughts regarding this item, genuine or repro? Many thanks, skip01.

    Hello, I am no expert whatsoever on buckles but this looks like a modern copy to me. The detail to the front looks very weak and a bit to "spaced out" to my eye's. Then again, maybe it is just over polished? There are however many buckle experts here who will put me right if I am wrong so wait for them to "chip in". Leon.

    Thanks for the reply! The photos make the buckle appear more 'shinier' and 'cleaner' than it actually is, but it's quite difficult to take a good enough picture to show this. Hopefully someone else can shed some light on this

    A nice buckle! The roundel on your buckle is the same as the one seen on 'ugly claw' types.

    You can't really compare SA buckles by different makers, because there are many differences. The one posted by Scottmadoo was made by Overhoff and
