    Default Unmarked SS Overhoff?

    I feel like I am in foreign waters, what do you guys think about this buckle? The wear looks okay to me, but the prongs look strange, the tips appear too elongated. It is difficult to see the head detail, but here are some photos:

    I'm not an expert on these, but it looks like it's cast to me.

    The fastener looks good. Show close up the head of an eagle and a place of the lower part of a core.

    Ivan, are the prongs normal for a cracked wing? When I got mine it had not prongs.

    pardon my ignorance, but why are these called a "cracked wing"? Thanks

    Yes Ben, the pointed and sharp prongs are typical, my buckle had the assymetrical prongs (one prong shorter) that also is common
    thie example are the JP Redeuilh type 2 (without crack)

    Here is something interesting from another thread

    Hello All,

    Those buckles are perfectly original. I still do not know who is the maker behind those buckles but I named years ago this serie "the cracked wing" due to its defect visible on the right wing. Readers can all see the hairline crack located on the top of the right wing and also going under the eagle's beak. Both buckles participants used for comparison were made using the exact same dies. It is obvious since both buckles are displaying the same die defect (hairline crack). Visible differences could be credited to wear, angle photos were taken, different metal which could have been used, etc...but they were made with the exact same dies.
    Prongs post and post sleeve are also perfectly original and recorded to belong to this serie.
    FYI there is three main variants of this buckle: this one with the "cracked wing" (the most common), one without any defect/hairline crack (much scarcer) and one marked Ges.Gesch.(very rare).
    Those buckles are also found with at least two finish: solid neusilber (nickel silver) or plated.
