    Default SS Overhoff Nickel Buckle

    As some of you will know, I collect the pieces that are dug up from mother earth.

    I think that an item removed from the soil, can speak volumes. More so than a "minty" item.

    I have had in my small collection a number of years an SS buckle. Not that exciting, but when you consider that it is a nickel buckle, by overhoff, and it has traces of green paint, and the belt is still attached (some missing) But best of all it came with one Ammo pouch. Marked stamped and dated for the SS. A nice touch. It took me a long time to prise this article from a good friend of mine, but I'm sure you will agree, it has character. It came from an area in Russia some years back.

    I hope you enjoy seeing it.

    I have better things on my wall, one day, I'll get around to photographing them.

    How about a PO8 with history, from a pilot Ju88, Battle of Britain, with photographs, and aircraft ID plate

    Here you go Ben. Bit Miffed really, took the belt off very very carefully, obviously not careful enough, one of the catch pins disintegrated

    Sorry John, if I'd have known it was that delicate I would not have asked, you have a very nice set there John, condition not fantastic but historically great, love the SS marked pouches, shame the belt is not SS marked too, that would be the icing on the cake

    Hi John, that is a nice relic buckle- but the green is not a paint, this is the oxidation which give the white brass ( I would say nickel doesen't oxidize) the buckle made of some kind of german named white brass- ALPACCA, which contain mixed metals as cooper, nickel, and some other metals, the cooper gives green color. That is normally seen on all of ground dugs buckles , Reichswehr and early SS
