    I gave this buckle a cleaning with warm water and dish soap. Cleaned it with an old tootbrush. (for an hour) I just about gave-up on this buckle being authentic but I surely don't know enough about SS buckles to judge either way. Either way, have another look, please.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry Green, but I don't like it. It looks an awful much to me like a fake that's had acid paste smeared across it.

    Unfortunately Glenn the faker boys are now into relics as well Now that Relic SS anything is changing hands for good prices it is worth them trying to pass of fakes as relics as in this case !

    Too true! I noted with the above example the inconsistency of the corrosion. Really, a buckle buried for 60+ years should exhibit similar overall surface deterioration. My relic SS buckle is a case in point.

    Thank you guys

    I trust what I am told....too many good buckle collectors here! It's unfortunate that fakers are heartless but one day they will run into the wrong person and learn the wrongs of their ways. I paid $40 for it, so not a huge sum but the point is that I would not have paid $1 if I knew it was fake. In the spirit of adventure and excited treasure hunting, this will not be my last either. LOL I love the hunt and will always take a chance on the inexpensive stuff. Lets just hope I learn faster!

    The forum will learn, as a whole, from these threads, so not a complete loss.

    Thank you guys

    Thanks Steve

    I would not spend that kind of money on something I have not clue about. Folks pay $200 for relics? Relics are not for me then. LOL $40 = It's like going to the gambling boat.....DONT EXPECT TO WIN!
