Hi

The buckle is a very nice original, just not Legion Condor but early DDR police.

Kind regards

God point, Dan, and I absolutely agree. Buckles still in inventory and re-stamped to conform to current regulations. The manufacturer's logo was a no-no for the RZM from the beginning of course, but...

The RZM may have let this practice go (if indeed they had the resources to control licensed manufacturers that closely in 1934 and early 1935), but it would still be an error and not, in the strict...

Well, strictly speaking the manufacturer was in error as the "U.E." series was for insignia. The correct corresponding marking for a belt buckle would have been RZM K.H. 44.

Hi Fred

Going by the pictures, I don't see any red flags about the markings. But you have the item in hand, so you're best placed to judge. About the Roman numerals, I think it is a popular...

Hi John

If, as it appears to be from the picture, the buckle has a burnished finish, then all ranks of the Reich forestry service wore it with their everyday dress. For fancy occasions, forestry...

Hi William

Saxony it is indeed - but the Prussian province, and not the Freistaat. In the Assmann catalogue, it carries the prefix "Prov." to denote the difference. Here's what I wrote in another...

"Hch." should be the abbreviation of Heinrich, thus the company's founder was one Heinrich Schwerter.

I don't have documentary evidence, but s symbol with three swords would make sense for a company called Schwerter, which is the plural for Schwert = sword.

Ron

Three excellent buckles. Does the Dicke have an additional mark of KH 22 on the inside of the box? Am asking because I once had one of These with the KH 22 also present.

Kind regards...

Hi

I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole. Stay away from this one and wait for the "right" buckle to come along.

Heyst56 is of course correct to point out the term Niedersachsen is a very old, albeit diffusely used, one. It takes...
