Title Fake Allgemeine SS belt buckle
Nationality Hungary?
Period c 2004

This would appear to be made from the same dies as the now well-known Waffen SS copies with Assmann markings in die-struck steel with silver wash finish. Amost certainly this item comes from Hungary and has Overhoff & Co markings on the reverse. It appears to be made of nickel, but this is not the same material as the genuine article.

The reverse prongs and post have been taken from a genuine combat buckle to confuse the issue. The post has been hand peened, but the originals were always machine peened. Note also the silver soldering to the base of the brass clip. The retail value of the real article is about 200. (This item does not belong to me and is not for sale.)

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

I received the sword and belt this afternoon. Always a bit of a risk buying this sort of thing online but I'm very pleased with the quality of the sword and scabbard...

Just a quick note to let you know that my bayonet arrived safely today. Many thanks for the speedy delivery and overall excellent service! For its age this bayonet is in fantastic condition.

I will mark your website as a 'favourite'...
