Post Wehrmacht belt buckle S.H.U.Co 40

Hello to all,
I just found this Wehrmacht belt buckle S.H.U.Co 40.
I looked but books and other post it seems ok, but I ask your opinion of collectors before making the purchase.
thank you in advance to all who will take the time to answer me.
cordially
guigui

I am sure a lot of collectors were fooled by this buckle, when it first hit the market.

Default shuco buckle

GuiGui This is one of the recent cast SHUCO repro I have a real one posted over in German Helmet Wallah and with Ben Evans in War Relics forum it is one I had about 40 years. You can see the difference expecially on the back side. I have been reading and seeing these like yours for a while. So they must have hit the market in the last 10 years or so. There are real SHUCO buckles. They did make them in wartime it looks like the fakers picked their logo. Thanks timothy

Hi All

Epic militaria have this one for £37.50 I believe. It's smaller than the original and has a tell tale "bald " spot on the top edge to the right.

Best

Original wartime Shuco buckles are well made considering SHuco was a toy maker! that went into production of buckles, and badges during war. timothy

You are referering to Schuco. This is a different company:

Schuco = Schreyer u. Co./ Nürnberg

S.H.u.Co. = Sohni, Heubach u. Co./ Oberstein

Best,

Yes S.H.u.C.O. Metal producer during third reich made buckles and badges. Evidently the fakers are into using their logo. timothy
