I now get the SS belt buckle. I made many pictures of it.
The belt buckle has a weight of ca.20g and a diameter of ca.49,4 cm.
I think it's a nice worn original.
Best regards Torsten
Torsten, I like the buckle and I also think it is an original buckle, I cannot see any cast marks on it, lets see what JP says about it. If it turns out to be a fake buckle then we are in alot of trouble!
no other one more opinion? I looked on the web and some of the original SS leader belt buckles found for comparison.

I have seen some very good cast buckles, they are Czech made. The material used is softer than aluminium, and the colour is more graphite. They are very good made. And if I will buy a buckle, I want hand inspect them
