Title Allgemeine SS other ranks buckle
Nationality German
Period c 1933-6
Sold

Good example of Overhoff & Co marked piece. This design dates from c 1927 and was continued in the 1936 marked aluminium buckle and, indeed, the later steel versions. This particular buckle, made of solid nickel silver, cannot be any later than 1936 manufacture on account of the introduction of the RZM marking, which starts in 1936.

Note the brazing on the base of the goal posts has a nice yellow colour, indicating hand finished, traditional brazing. The otherwise excellent copies of these buckles have a major give-away, namely that the goal posts are silver soldered to the frame of the buckle and can thus be easily distinguished from the originals.

The dirk arrived this morning and I could not be happier with it! Excellent little piece, most unusual... I look forward to doing more business with you, as finance permits; rest assured you will be highly recommended to my collecting colleagues.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
