Just out of interest gents, this is a Heer conversion from a Tunnerbund buckle by Hugo Schneider, quite unique I thought
just out of discussion. I'm envy
Thanks for posting.
PS: Drop me a line if once be for sale.
Waw..a first for me , super nice and rare buckle
Thankyou koppel71 and others. This thread relates to what is in my opinion, a classic and iconic series of buckles which and without exception, have a long pedigree and long history. I think that some of the DT and FFFF buckles are still easy to secure and and at very reasonable prices. Having said that, who knows anything about these chaps? Is there a difference between the Turnerschaft and the Turnerbund? Is there a difference between the DT and the FFFF? Why is the FFFF buckle so common? Why do we see so many FFFF buckles with makers marks not seen on any other buckles?
I do like the first buckle posted by koppel71. A fabulous and flowing design. The construction most surprisingly including the now well documented "ugly" one piece claw arrangement.
Noch eine Turnerbund zu WH
Many thanks for showing that buckle, only the second ever Heer/Tunnerbund conversion I have seen
Veilen Danke fur der Schloss, das ist nur Zweite Heer/Tunnerbund ich sehen
