Default Fake Hessian Buckle

Here are photos from a recent eBay listing for a fake, modern made Hessian buckle that was being sold as an original.

Original Hessian Model 1895 buckles Did Not have a Crown Shaped like this one. They also Did Not use a steel roller pin on them, and did not have steel clipped angle claw pins on them. This is a modern made buckle (probably made in the Czech Republic, but who knows where for sure), and artificially aged to fool the unsuspecting collector.

Here's the direct link to the listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/WWI-WW1-IMP...53.m1438.l2649

Best Regards,

Alan

Hello Alan,

I saw that piece of crap. Bidding is over $100.00, and the auction ends tonight.

I do love the one I picked up on a bad-ass hate belt though...

Thanks Chuck!

That hate belt you have is probably the nicest & coolest one that exists. The machine gunner badge & the EK1 on it with the Hessian buckle is just Tops!

Best Regards,

Alan

Damn what an ugly fake - the one that started this thread. Nothing close to an original.

@Chuck - nice looking buckle is there a maker's stamp on the leather tab? If so, who is the maker?

The leather tab is nailed down pretty tight so I cannot see if the other side is marked.

I think if you just cut that piece of rope you should be able to see it quite well.
