Older post but fresh question - did you ever collect a series of GS buckle designs? You mention one of the gold ones here, but is seems that a resource on epoch-correct designs for the steel buckles is not available. If there is - and if *you* published it earlier - I'll apologize for the disruption. Thanks!

The Instagram scenario is a proper eye roller. Gerald’s years of market intel’ and forensic insights into fakery and historical correctness is expertise worth paying for - and I suspect that the egos at the likes of auction houses and digital media/advertising sites have decided to raise complaints to silence a voice which was correcting them when the came up short. The smart move would have been to embrace such a rare and valuable resource.
