This looks like an original RODO to me
Go check out Ben Evans thread about buckle makers, it may help you, I have one myself although its very rusted,
here is what ben said about RODO buckels........
Hi all, I have some spare time so I thought I would add to this thread, this maker is RODO or Robert Dold, Offenburg. I have only ever seen Heer and SS buckles by this maker, both are copied but very easy to tell original from copy. The prongs seem to be what I call short stubby and blunt or rounded on the end of them. The pin head is over size, very large compared to normal/standard buckles. The Heer eagle is again very unique to this maker and very easy to spot with practise. On the SS buckles the catch is bent to one side and the RODO is in small neat letters, on the fakes you find large letters (known as a fat boy fake) and the belt catch dos not look right, also the lack of a large pin head and normal prongs, not short blunt ones. Compare the pictures and you will see what I mean
A real one with a lot of paint. Very nice.

$500 would be a good price $250 is a steal.
