    Bavarian em buckle?

    Hi All
    I recently acquired this Bavarian buckle and belt. Buckle tab is dated 1915 with makers mark (cannot read) but there is no makers stamp on the buckle itself. Is this normal?
    The leather looks correct for year/age but I’ve also noticed the crown isn’t ‘common’ amongst other Bavarian examples.
    Have I got a lemon here?

    Thanks all

    Hi Ben.
    Thank you.
    The prongs are consistent with other WW1 buckles I’ve seen and own. They all seem to be very haphazard compared to say WW2 buckles.
    That said I take on board your observations with the catch design. I’m struggling to find another WW1 buckle with this design.
    Many thanks

    At work at mo or I would post other examples, the WW1 repro/fake buckles are getting just better and better, have a look through this thread at some of these sites, and these are just some of them!

    Links to sites that sell reproduction buckles (ref to fake buckles)
