    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..
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    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!
