WW1 Era German Belt Buckle Fakes


Recommended Posts

I have been seeing a lot of these items lately, they are very well done by the way. The seller is listing them as repro's, the buckle itself looks good, the plate looks too new and does not match the wear of the buckle, however, buyer beware.

These are some of the rarer buckles and highly priced.

Yeah, that is why I posted the images. Some poor sap might be thinking he is getting a fantastic deal.

A few of these have been turning up lately, offered as originals, but in a very beaten up state, I think this example is original,
it costs just under 300 Euros. There are also grey metal versions around.
This buckle was worn only by Kgl.Sächsisches Schützen- (Füsilier-) Regiment Nr.108, which is very rare indeed. Example in picture is a copper coloured Tombak version, with a varation hook system to the rear. Note the solder marks, medallion many have been repaired or reattached at an earlier stage.
