"knife-edged" buckle (for the KS and MM Panerai), is originally
copper? Or all pre-6152 are all copper?

Excellent write-up mate.

You guys are right, my mistake... it should be either brass or
nickel, not copper... no way they use an expensive corrosive metal
like that for a buckle.

Thanks a lot Asi for the wonderful photos. Heaven for us strap-buckle freaks.

Here are some closeups of the sandbasted compass ones. (strap in aftermarket)

Do you have any idea what represents the stamped number in the front (mine is 2 and yours is 3) ?
