DESCRIPTION

This is a very special buckle.  Not only is it early, being made of solid nickel, but it also retains almost 100% of the factory over-coating that these buckles were produced with.  This over-coating almost never survives, mostly because SS members would polish off the coating in order to keep their buckle looking shiny and new-looking.  In the USMC we did the same thing.  When we received a new buckle, we would polish off the protective coating so that scratches did not develop in the finish.  For every 100 "raw" nickel buckle you see, you may see 4 or 5 in this state of preservation.
