Well I must say Ivan, that first one is a corker, looks like it has been in a time warp. I have been trying to find fault with it but cannot see nothing at the mo, I will have another good look at the makers mark but on first impression mate well done The dogs head is also very nice
Both very nice, i need a "dog head" in my collection!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Two great additions. Love the markings on the first one.
two nice buckles .
I've also hold one of this Assmann buckles in my collection .
Coms out of an hordfound from germany in the last month ..........
Also the doghead variation is very nice !

I do so like the Assmann SA that you have shown and as Markus has quite rightly confirmed, one from a recent hoard find. Lovely non issued condition with of course the bonus of the RZM UE 8 stamping to the inner lip of the buckle. Assmann !
Perhaps not the most exciting of SA's by design, however one with a makers provenance by appearing within the Assmann catalogue. Here we have advertised the same buckle in both 45 mm and 40 mm form.
The buckle with a mobile swastika is documented with both a "gold" (brass) and "silver" (nickle silver), box. Perhaps slightly less known is that the same "Assmann eagle" is oddly, encountered with a sun-wheel swastika.
A super buckle and complete with the tissue wrap which would have nestled the Assmann distribution box of (I think) 25.
