    Was just checking out the results of the Craig Gottliebs auction that ended today. I was surprised to see someone bid $1525 for a fake 35/36 marked nickel SS officers buckle on a belt with bogus marking. It was sold in the repo section. Gottlieb says this is a scary fake. Wouldn't be surprised to see it pop up somewhere with a $5000 price tag.

    Someone clearly has more money than what is good for them..

    The person probably just wants to resell it as an original.

    I think that linking to Gottlieb's site is verboten, but here are the photos of the reproduction buckle to which Kirby is referring:

    And here is another group that sold at the same auction for $176. This was a pretty good deal, I think:

    The priorities of those bidders is maybe a bit off, unless the SS officer buckle is actually a mislabeled genuine one.

    Thanks Erno, I looked for the SS example earlier and did not locate it. I would have grabbed that nice Heer buckle

    Thats a hard repro to spot, in ref to the Heer buckle, thats the best Gbr Albert buckle I have ever seen, and such a hard maker to get hold of

    I agree that the Heer and Luftwaffe buckles were a good buy. That's a decent Luft parade buckle, so that value of that is probably around $60-75, which would make the Heer about $100 for whoever bought it. I wish I'd have seen it!
