I’ve noticed some other posts with the same buckle, however the backing was different.
If the pictures don’t show it, there is slight rusting, and it appears to have brass coming through some areas.
My question- the back of the buckle- does this look authentic?
Here is a dagger that I would like to purchase from a local collector. While he’s a great guy, he’s no photographer! :rolleyes:
If these pictures aren’t enough to give folks here a solid idea of the dagger’s authenticity, I can go there and take shots myself, but then I’m "that guy" and I’d rather not do so unless I have to.
For what it’s worth, I have seen the dagger in person and it looked really solid to me.
Again, I apologize for the lousy pictures.
As always, thanks to all for any assistance you could provide!
I’ve identified the markings belonging to "Grupul Etnic German" (German Ethnic Group in translation, something like "Volksgruppe in Rumänien" or "Landesgruppe Rumänien") but I’m curios if it’s an uniform button or a pin, or something else.
