    Nope! Not yet! I am certain someone will see it eventually but remember..it's cosmetic, esthetic if you will. Like a mustache drawn on a Mona Lisa.

    The old spelling was Waldbrul. The new spelling is Waldbrohl.

    Asymmetrical cut lines on the belt loops?

    I have no idea what "cut lines" means but I can only assume you are meaning the welting lines impressed upon the edges of the left belt loop. BINGO! That is the booger hanging off it's nose. It looks SO out of place!
    A modern welting tool has two sides. Slim and wide. I can't say what the Germans used..might have been the same choice. It is possible to mistake one for the other on a modern welting tool until is is impressed upon the leather strap where it becomes glaringly obvious. It is a small error but one that I have NEVER before seen.

    Yep that’s what I was referring to, I just didn’t know the terminology. Do think it was a factory error?

    Yes, It's a factory loop. Something that small was of no consequence to the Wartime Germans. Just a goofy error and a curiosity to collectors in 2020!
    The buckle assembly is a little harder to explain!

    Thanks Jerry, this one may be of interest as well. It's another Karl Bocker 1940 looks to be a similar buckle and cut.
