    Dear Alex,

    In my opinion, a period and quite interesting SA buckle.

    The roundel by the design and by the quality of the slightly soft strike is not the most aesthetically pleasing, although there is an interesting swastika under the "red dot".

    The crudely cast and integral claws/pin shroud is common for this particular SA buckle, as is the distinctive ramp to the strap catch.

    Just my opinion, however I do not think that this buckle started life earless. Often seen as you have shown and it really matters not.

    Regards and best wishes,

    David

    Here is an SA example that is earless. This is my buckle, and Mr. North has a similar example. Buckle similar to the early SS earless examples.

    Dear Alex,

    Many thanks for showing the roundel in the full entirety.

    For design reasons and simply nothing else, a slightly unorthodox and eccentric execution of a mobile swastika that I have always found interesting.

    As for the crudely cast and integral claws/pin shroud arrangement to your buckle and as you know, many examples have been previously posted on the Forum.

    Regards and best wishes,

    David

    Shown before on the Forum, although a very interesting topic that Weller has now introduced into this thread.

    Regards and best wishes,
