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

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.

My husband LOVED his North Africa escape map - I had it professionally framed - it's beautiful.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
