Can anybody ID this Luftwaffe buckle?

I picked this belt & buckle up at an antique shop! The only TR thing he had. On the back it has 2 diamond-shaped symbols. The buckle has had so much use you can hardly make them out anymore. Can somebody tell me who made this buckle? The belt, itself, is marked: ST KOMP. J.O.R. II/134 (or 34) 1937 below the date is an I The former owner (Kurt Streibel) carved his name on the belt. On the other end of the belt is stamped "lL.B.A." and possibly some other things that I really can’t read. Thanks for any info you can give me.

Hamburgers allowed… R J.R.76

As last helmet for 2009 I want to show you a M95 Pickelhaube for Enlisted Men of R J.R.73.III.B. of the city Hamburg. Inside it's also marked in white paint J.R.163 1910...
I suppose the wearer of this helmet was first with J.R.163 and became later a reservist in R J.R.73.III.B.
I can't make out the makers mark, anyone has a clue?

Time travel book and backwards watch.

I bought an interesting book discusing time travel.Its a facinating concept.with the book you get a pocket watch that when you wind it it goes in reverse.Of all the pictures of german soldiers you have seen with helmets on ect which ones would you go back in time to get.I remember seeing a picture of a hitler youth in Berlin ready to face the russians,poor kid with a large m42 on which nearly covered his eyes it was so big,thats one i would go back for,and add to my collection.
