    Dear Gwar,

    An interesting assessment as your friend has possibly and in my opinion, been told the truth. An element of guess work here and really, detailed images of the roundel would be much preferred. From the images provided, the eagle appears to be the well known “hook nose” fake (I may be wrong) and it is encountered in various forms to include the eagle supporting both mobile and sun wheel configuration swastikas. In addition, the inner field of the roundel by the fakes, is encountered as both brass/“silver” and smooth/pebbled.

    In my opinion, the pin, pin shroud and claws are not in simpatico to this buckle, if original. The ears to the brass box have in my opinion been inexplicably forced open for whatever reason and do not sit well with this buckle, again if original.

    In my opinion, a fake roundel on a possibly period, albeit mangled brass box, complete with an inappropriate claw assembly.

    USD 20 I would suggest, seems a reasonable price.

    Regards and best wishes,

    David
