Recently I picked up this iron SS buckle, painted greyis green and rusty. It is stamped RODO under the catch. What worries me is the position of the catch. It is so far to the rim that the rim of the buckle just touches the leather of the belt.

What is the opinion of the knowledgeble gentlemen?

This buckle is unfortunatlely a reproduction. The Rodo buckle has always had a "slanted" foot on the belt catch. If you just google SS RODO buckle reverse and check images, you'll see what I mean. You'll also notice that the buckle is a little smaller and as a result, the motto is too large (look at the front bottom of the buckle where the "rope" is on the bottom of the buckle box - there should be a small space there). The RODO stamping is also not quite correct in font and serif and the detail to the front is not as it should be. I'm sorry to have to offer you this news. Hopefully you can return it or hopefully it wasn't too expensive. Good luck.

Cheers!

I already had my doubts, and the price I've paid wasn't much.

Never the less I want to share this information with you gents, for good learning.

Thanks a ton Rob!
