Default Makers Mark on Left Facing Eagle Buckle

Hello everyone,

I recently picked up this beautiful left facing eagle buckle also known as "conversion Heer buckle." Was hoping to get some assistance with the manufactures mark on the reverse?

Thank you in advance for any help with this one.

Best,
Blaine

A really nice buckle! Actually, Paul Cramer, not Paulmann u. Crone. It's so very easy to confuse the two companies. I always have to check, anyway, as I muddle them up all the time. And, as has been insinuated, not a "conversion" buckle, which would be a buckle for one organisation (in practice, either Deutsche Turnerschaft or Reichswehr), having become obsolete, being "converted" to a Heer buckle.

Kurt is right. It is Paul Cramer & Co. This marking within a triangle is shown upon the cover of their cataloque. The buckle is the version for the Extrakoppel and is not a conversion buckle.
Angolia is right with this with his revised edition (page 22).

I really appreciate all the help guys! I was glad to see a makers mark since most I had seen when researching Left Facing buckles were all unmarked examples.

Thanks again

Blaine

I agree, Paul Cramer und Co. from Ludenscheid, an "hence tooth" right facing from this producer.

My best compliments for your finding .

Cheers
