    SS EM Buckle With Paper Tag

    Could I please have opinions on this buckle to see if it is real or not. The buckle is marked "RZM - 155 / 40 - SS and the paper is marked "M 4 / 39 - 263074 A". Ant help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tom.

      I like the buckle and the tag. Usually the roller bar and prongs are painted silver like the buckle. Any silver paint remaining on them?

        I like buckle and tag.
        With this variant it is not uncommon that there is no silver paint work on the roller sleeve and claws.

          Thanks Guido. A small variation I didn’t know about.

                  To me the buckle is not unissued and has been worn. So, why a paper tag? And while both may be Assmann codes, why the difference?

                    One is the SS code the other is a RZM code. I don’t know why it needed both but I would like to have one. I have three other examples of these in my files. They are all from here or War Relics.

                      Nice buckle and tag. Any wear looks like storage/shelf wear to me.

                        I would love to see other examples with paper tags. I have owned HJ buckles with paper tags (fragile paper ones that have been glued, not heavier paper with a staple). Same silver finish but with storage wear.

                        The wear on the catch is mechanical wear from being on a belt. Always shows up on the outer edge of the catch first. I could present a number of both unissued Luftwaffe tropical buckles with storage wear, and lightly worn tropical buckles with mechanical catch wear and the same wear to the highlights on the front.

                        There is already concerns regarding the tag not matching (SS and RZM). I call that a warning bell.

                          Here is my original aluminum Assmann SS buckle, mint unissued with RZM tag for comparison. Hopefully this may help with coding questions or concerns, as this one is 100% legit.

                              Great buckles. Certainly unissued and both with the tag attached to the catch.
