Thanks for the excellent close-up images

This looks to be copper showing through the silver at this point on the roundel ?

It is my understanding that many of the post-war re-strikes were made of copper rather than the correct nickel-silver.

The roundel on the M-S buckle that I have shown in post number is made from nickel-silver showing wear, use, light dents and patina to the nickel,
