    I recently got burnt by an SS buckle. It looked great on internet pics and was advertised on a nice website that specialized in german helmets. After I got the buckle in hand I was able to determine that it was indeed, a fake. The seller, sadly, did not stand by his product. This one looks okay. I would feel better if the 3 in 38 was a little closer, even touching the slash (/). You cannot tell this fake from the front. It looks great. The back is the telltale. The prongs seem a little short. They should extend slightly beyond the rope. Measuring the buckle in hand and inspecting the quality of the aluminum is a clear indication of fakery. Plus, take a look at the post ends (or ask for a pic of such) are there hammered marks? These are not original, even for buckles heavily used in combat. IMO i would stay away from this one. The vendor who sold me mine also sold example just like this. I'm sure it was fake and told him so. Alas, I could not warn the buyer who now has a nice piece which is worth about $50. Caveat emptor. rick

    Machal, hard call from these pics, the colour in the alu seems ok, if you can inspect the buckle measure its length that will determine whether original or not

    Hi! I am new to this site I mistakenly bought a 822/38 recently. I measured it I think the real ones are over or about 2.535 inches. Mine was under and the width was smaller. The buckle has some pitting like cast marks. I was taken and the guy stated in the auction no returns. I believe the real original ones were not cast but stamped.

    You are absolutely correct.

    About size, if overall measurements are still a valid way to tell difference between a fake and an original, it does apply only to older fakes. The recent have corrected this issue.
