Thread: Any ideas what these are....?

    Any ideas what these are....?

    Been in the family for quite some time and made of what looks/feels like lead. On the reverse there is a pin and nut for fixing to something.
    Has anyone got any idea what they are as they are going on ebay!
    Thanks!

    I've never seen their like, but they look nicely made.

    To my eye, they have a distinctly continental, perhaps Swiss or German, look about them.

    I hope someone on here is able to enlighten us!

    Centre pieces off shooting trophies (Shutzfest -continental) perhaps?

    I think i would be finding out more about them before putting them on ebay.
    They may be worth more than what you think!!

    Definitely belt buckles and I am 99.9% sure they are German (more specifically Bavarian) pre WW1.

    Would you have any objections to me posting them on another (non shooting related) forum for opinions? There are many German and continental members there who might be able to shed some light on these fine objects.
    Best Regards,

    I wonder whether something as subject to wear as a belt-buckle would be made out of so easily-injured a substance as lead/lead-alloy?
