Can anyone shed light on what these were made for, by whom, when etc? Found in the UK.
They are 82 x 58mm

I have no clue, but the ones Chris posted don't have a price ($750) like the repops

I also found the '70s repros, but the ones I have seen are iron. The slogan dates from 1945/6.
The iron versions are missing the apostrophe, unlike the bronze/brass types.
The repros only seem to feature the Centerdoor, not the Model A (?)

I'm with Rob - RED rust with no black pitting is new as if it were "aged" to look the part. I think if you look up that particular sales slogan it was post WW2 vintage

I always think of that slogan as being 1940s - anyone seen it used in the T era? Chris, are they belt buckles? If so, I'm voting modern I.e. post-war.

Those are what I would call modern "fantasy pieces" produced in the last 30 or 40 years.

They aren't historic or a reproduction of anything. Just a crude item to sell at flea markets.

They're similar to the brass Tiffany belt buckles that show up all the time.

Yes; I think you are all correct. Fortunately, they're not mine!
