Thanks Chris

I'm not really a buckle collector and had to fight for that one at auction, now and again I pick one up they are cool and like looking at collections. This Bavarian is painted brass.

The first initial looks like a "C." or "G.", but I have nothing close to this on my list, so it is a new one.

My Bavarian children. I keep turning them up in black; there are three here--a fourth resides with a friend. 

My feldgrau one is likely repainted in recent years, though I got it out of a collection in Germany. One brass and one steel came out of the US, the rest all came to me from overseas. Note the varied construction styles and the period repair to the one with the tab.

Omitted mention of the blue souvenir tin in the above photo--it is a full sized Bavarian device mounted to a Gem Razor, UK, shaving set.

Hello,

Apparently the Bavarians have a special ones for "Musikmeister", with different brocade colors. Must be super rare. A friend had one for the Musikmeister of the 2nd bavarian Jäger but it is unfortunately long gone.
