Nice buckle Markus, any indication as to the maker of the buckle?
nice job markus! nice example...!
Best regards, Patrick
My initial thought was Berge & Nolte due to the catch, I am sure David will let us know when he sees this thread, Adam might even have seen other examples like these
I just love these buckles. There are so many variants out there! THey have a wonderful look to them! Congrats Markus!
Very, very nice! I like it very much! Bravo!
Indeed a good looking "Front Heil" buckle and I think that these one piece brass examples are eagerly sought after. One piece brass of course and when produced, the two common features of a "gilded" type finish and striations to the reverse box.
I think that we have a few examples of this buckle on our superb data base.
As to who the manufacturer could have been, frankly I have no idea.
This Stahlhelmbund buckle appears to have constant obverse features. It is however found with differing types of wide paddle feet catches and pin shroud/claw arrangements.
