    Personnal notes from examination of more than 20 buckles:
    - ALL have the exact same post, postsleeve and (typical) prongs.
    - One prong is always longer than the other
    - Crack seems to be much more frequent on plated examples and/or could be the result of aging die(s). Another option could be too much presure on stamping press since those buckles with crack have a very rounded front.

    Dear Jean-Pierre

    Thankyou for the additional images and further information in connection with this remarkably interesting thread.

    I appreciate and greatly welcome everything that you have said (including showing that remarkable "plated" buckle), however I wonder, does any other early period SS buckle have the "curly and drop elongated top stroke", to the "T" on the motto ? Perhaps it is another distinguishing and unique identification mark to this SS buckle?

    Regards,

    David

    I honestly never noticed this distinguishing mark. But it is perfectly legitimate to assume your above statement since production was made before RZM standardization. So any design (or variation of it) was purly the result of either designer or its engraver.

    Thanks David for the close up .
    If one has spare time, he/she could further compare many other parts of an Overhoff SS buckle with a "cracked wing" SS buckle.
    He/she will be able to find many, many. differences. Some will be major, some will be minor.
