These police blackened buckles were worn by Fire Department NCOs. Bright buckles were worn by the regular police. Blackened buckles could be worn both by either Feuerwehr and Feuerschutzpolizei. Black police officer buckles show the same distinction.

thank you I was curious about why it was black. how common are they? I almost wrote it off as a police buckle with the silver wash/paint chipping off till I looked at the back.

They are actually less often seen than the standard bright finished Police NCO buckle. The blackened Officer buckle is seldom encountered.

On this example notice that the catch is also blackened.

I need to talk to my friend I got it from because he said this one was on a belt and he took it off and put the better buckle on the bet just thinking the same thing I was that the silver was flecking off.
