    how much variation is there to the Bavarian Buckle?

    I think of them as "There is a brass and nickle version... and a steel one...." ... but with Saxon ones there seem to be way more variation (I am talking the standard one here, not regiment specific. Sttel, brass, zink etc..

    Were the saxons simply more experimental?

    I have observed:

    Nickel on brass (or Tombak--but  do not seem to see the Tombak except rarely)

    Nickel completely for Leib, Pionier, usw.

    Steel with the medallion applied like on the earlier style. These are more commonly painted black instead of Feldgrau.

    Steel stamped from one piece, painted Black or Feldgrau.

    I also see many more Bavarian buckles painted Feldgrau over the Nickel/Brass.
