A lot of dealers don't a clue about buckles. I bought my 36/43 from a dealer for the price of an unmarked Overhoff. I pulled up the forum and was looking at the buckle in the SS makers sticky thread. It looked identical so I get a rare buckle at bargain.
Another dealer I know has a bunch of SS buckles priced at about half the price of original. By using the info on the forum I get a aluminum 36/40 for about a third of the real value. One real one in with a bunch of repo crap.
You can use these forum to your advantage to spot the fakes and to spot the real thing.

Most of the buckles he has for sale are fake!
Sounds like a dealer to avoid.
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
