Hi, again thanks for to Kenny for identifying the iron cross as a copy. I’m now a little concerned about a couple of belt buckles I bought from the same seller I nearly acquired the IC 1st Class from. Please see photos below and again any advice greatly appreciated…..fingers crossed it will be good news?!!!

Unfortunately someone has polished the face of the Wehrmacht buckle, shouldn't do that, the face had a fieldgrey finish as the rear, mostly now with a lot of wear and slight rust patina, best to leave it alone, otherwise a nice buckle. The leather would need some slight attention to freshen it up and preserve it, brush over with a soft brush to remove surface grime, and a good quality neutral leather cream would help.
