    I am astonished by the number of fake buckets in this article… any serious collectors would ignore this completely… the baseline one is nice !

      The main idea is to give understanding to the general public, but not to educate about fake buckles. It is a big post for another time 😉

    I came across a Luftwaffe belt buckle by Schmoll & Comp. Menden. It’s maker marked and dated 1940. The inside of the wreath has no pebbling. Outside of the name of the maker I have been unable to find information on Scmoll & Comp. Any info appreciated.

      Hi Brian,

      There were a lot of manufacturers of buckles and sometimes you can’t even find info about it. Can you show a pics of your LW buckle? You can attach photos to comments.

    The only marking on the buckle is an “A” on the inside. It’s a two piece for sure. I hope it’s real for the price I paid. The belt is in really nice condition and still has the liner on the inside .
