Is this an original SS officer belt?

    Question Is this an original SS officer belt?

    Hi Guys,

    I found this belt. I presumed it is a repro. The repro buckle who came off the belt, had a whole different hook. So maybe this one came from an other context.

    Hope that somebody can help with this one.

    Best regards Tommy

    Same as Ben here, although i noticed that it does have 7 strand silver edging, which doesnt really mean much, but if fake then its pretty elaborate, but as Ben said the tongue looks out of place with the stitching also lacking in quality

    Guys, thank you for your time.

    I made some extra pics, the other belts in the lot were original. This SS belt looks very well made. And it has the same smell.

    Hope that you can check the new photo's. What's the 7 strand silver edging you wrote in your reply?

    All the slings were bought in the `80, so this must be an old repro

    Maybe the new photo's will provide more detailsClick image for larger version.

    I have also a Luftwaffe belt, maybe you can also check this one? It looks also well made. The blue stitch on the back lighted up..those are blue.

    It came with a police buckle. Btw the hook is lose..I can see the yellow glue.

    I can see now that the SS belt has six strands, it wasnt exactly clear at the time of morning i was viewing it, the strands are the silver stitches that you see near to the edges and forms a kind of border, as for the Luftwaffe version you could be correct in your assumption that these are all replicas, but very well made

    Are you 100% sure about the Luftwaffe belt? It's a whole different quality.

    Tommy, I actually like the Lufte, the stitching leather tongue and felt are much better

    Thanks Ben,

    Should I glue it? Or do you think that a next owner should do this?

    I don't want to make it worser with stinky glue.. that people think it's a repro
