I'm with Sid, its a known reproduction.
These have been around at least 35 years now.

HI All, I've been a bit cheeky really, I hope you will forgive me. I knew this was a copy because I bought it from a company in Austria over 40 yrs ago. I also had an SS buckle. They produced a small red covered catalogue. They sold everything from badges to daggers. They made no attempt to pass them off as real, although by now much of their stuff will have developed a healthy believable patina. So well done all of you.Sorry for taking liberties. All the best ,Alex
