    An interesting "Stahlhelmbund" buckle to say the least.

    Roundel looks original and to my knowledge, this quite specific design has not been faked - yet.

    The brass box though and the pin, pin shroud and claw arrangement are horrible and not at all in simpatico to this roundel. I think that we have an original roundel which unfortunately has been stuck on to a fake box. Not at all unusual to see solder spots which offer "no visible means of support" and where instead, the roundel has been period silver soldered directly to the obverse of the box. There are very feint signs of such an affixing method by the images provided, however not enough to convince me at least.

    So, my thoughts are that we have an original roundel which has been cobbled on to a post 1945 box with faux impression trying to be achieved of a "cottage industry conversion".

    Regards and best wishes,

    David
