:welcome:
Wartime Luftwaffe "silver/grey" painted steel belt buckle- "HA is "for "H.Aurich Co. Dresden" .....42 is the date (1942)....
appears to be a "decent example".....alittle unusual to find a "silver/grey" painted steel buckle w/42 date....but certianly not "scarce" in the "buckle collecting world"....but a decent example of it's type....
No problem from what I see....

Hermann Aurich had a different maker mark. This H.A. is for Heinrich Arld. Not a common buckle.
