    Default NEW (Fake) RARE SS officer buckle to hit market

    I recently received evidence of a new SS officer fake hitting the market.
    This time this fake is certainly not intended to be sold cheap but instead should target advanced collectors looking for rare SS buckles. Of course usually such collectors do not hesitate to spend high $$ to get what they do not have in their collection. The return should be extremely lucrative for fakers.

    Fakers reproduced (or should I say tried to) duplicate the very rare SS officer buckle made by C.T.Dicke in 1939. It is one of the rarest SS officer buckle been produced. Where fakers found an example to duplicate, I certainly do not know, but they did get one since the reproduction is amazing if one does not have an original to compare to. Myself I know only 3 original and fortunately have high resolution pics of those 3 to compare - which maybe is not the case for all of you.

    But this time I am not going to help fakers to improve what is wrong. So I will post only photos of this new fake (Thanks to a Russian collector for his kind contribution) but not photos of the original. If you want to see an original, search the forum since there is one ground dug. Compare photos, study whatever you want but PLEASE do not write publicly which are the differences you can see !! Doing so is just helping fakers and is going against what I try to prevent.

    Thank You

    This is the kind of buckle I wouldn't buy without doing some research. It does look good but I wouldn't know what to look for. Thanks for posting.

    Indeed aluminium. As previously pointed out you have pics of an original in your forum.

    Whoever is looking for this buckle (as original of course) would already have made some research and already know what to expect from an original. The fake posted here is duplicating exactly what they are expecting to find. This is the reason why I wrote those fakes are probably targeting a certain market of collectors and not the average Mr.Joe.

    I am NOT going to provide direct links since I do not want to help any faker to improve quality of his crap further.

    If a collector is interested by this subject, he should already know where some pics of an original are located, like I do.

    Hello Jean-Pierre.
    Once again I want to thank you for your help with this buckle. This buckle is positioned as found from the earth. This is one of the most dangerous fake ss buckle. Inexperienced collector will be impossible to determine the authenticity of the buckle.
