    Default HJ and Soviet Relic Buckles

    Hi all. Just thought I would show these. I got them in a trade. Apparently both dug in Poland. Looks like the HJ has possibly been de- nazified. Makers mark is M4/110, which I believe makes the manufacturer Josef Felix and Sohne of Gablonz. This is a nice coincidence for me as Gablonz is now Jablonec nad Nisou in the Czech Republic and an area I know and have been to.

    The Soviet buckle I don't think is anything special, just a nice, solid relic of the Great Patriotic War

    Cheers.

    The Soviet buckle is a post war issue, maybe dropped by soldier who cleaned the area from the explosives postwar due a closure break

    Nice buckles. Is the Soviet buckle certainly wartime? I thought that type was introduced postwar?

    Thanks for the info Dimas. How can you tell it is post war as I know nothing about Soviet buckles, and if post- war, then roughly what period? Cheers.

    Just looked it up in 'Soviet Uniforms and Militaria 1917-1991', its an enlisted mans buckle introduced in 1951. However they were still wearing the same, or very similar pattern in the 1980's.
