    Default Freikorps / Veteran org. buckle added to collection

    Hey gang! I've been after one of these buckles for YEARS and was finally able to acquire one around X-mas time (a gift to myself). It arrived today from the US (Thanks Bill!) and I'm quite happy to have it added to the collection. Introduced in or around 1920 but I don't have all that much information on it. Any one have more details or info about these buckles? Are they considered Freikorps or another type of Veterans' org.?
    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Very happy to have it added to the collection.
    Cheers!

    Hello Rob

    A super addition to your collection and congratulations.

    To my knowledge, this buckle (together with many others of course) has not as yet been clearly identified as to whom the intended wearer was. If I had to make a guess, I would say that it was a "cottage industry" manufactured buckle, eventually to be privately bought by those who had served during the Great War. As such, perhaps a commemorative rather than a specific organisations buckle.

    A rare buckle and I think appealing to both Imperial and Weimar focused collectors.

    Regards,

    David

    Glad you like it gentlemen! David...Thanks so much for your insight on these buckles. I do not have a lot of experience with these and my knowledge is quite limited. It would be great to find a period of pic of one of these in wear to help ID the true purpose of the buckle.
    I appreciate your help, my friend!
    Cheers guys!
