    Hello all,

    I just thought I'd put my LW Beltbuckle up for display and opinions. It is very worn down but I am pretty sure it is a good original that has been worn down or overpolished. The details from the back are very sharp and it is a very light, non-magnetic piece. Any ideas on maker and originality?

    Thanks alot,

    Hi Pat,

    I totally agree... a nice Luft with good, honest wear. I have had several of these in the past... I finally was down to a set, one in the aluminum and one that was painted blue which I believe were worn with the Luftwaffe work overalls for field crews and such... those who would refuel, rearm, maintain the aircraft, etc.

    I regret having gotten rid of those, as well as a beautiful unissued Luft camo breast eagle. Should have hung onto all of them.

    Very nice piece... now all you need is the belt to go with it. :P

    Dan :cheers:

    There's an honest LW buckle that's seen some action! Without the MM, I can't help you with the maker but it's funny how these injection molded aluminum buckles end up like this (on occasion). I currently have two that have this kind of wear to them.

    Nice salty piece...thanks for showing...here's my "saltiest" one! An early R.S.S droop tail LW buckle...

    Nice buckle Joel! Yeah Paul: let's see yours!

    I've since parted with the buckle I showed previously. It had just TOO much wear on it for me so I upgraded to the same type buckle with less wear...but I also like them with some "age" to them!

    Thanks for posting!
