    Did these come as pressed, two piece or both?
    Was the freikorps like a local german state militia or something national? I know they were a paramilitary organization but who led them? Were they a bunch of factions organized in the WWI to WWII era based on beliefs, politics, loyalty to a certain person?

    Dear Matt

    This buckle is desperately trying to be " Der Stahlhelmbund".

    It is however a fake. When you have a moment, have a look through the Rogues Gallery.

    Regards,
