    For 'D.R.G.M.' from Wikipedia: It stands for 'Deutsche Reichs-Gebrauchsmuster' which was used between 1891 and 1945 for a lot of procucts. It's a sort of patent protection (petty patent). According to other sources it was used until 1952 (please see for information DRGM - DRP - Registered and D.R.G.M.: An Early 20th Century German Copyright - The Bassic Sax Blog | The Bassic Sax Blog).

    From the Bassic Sax Blog: "D.R.G.M., or sometimes DRGM, is not a German patent. It was instead a way for inventors to register a product’s design or function in all states within Germany. From 1891 to 1952, products manufactured in Germany might have been stamped with this D.R.G.M. designation, if the manufacturer opted not to pay the outrageous patent fees that Germany was charging, but instead chose to copyright their product’s intended way of use, or design. This copyright was initially for a period of 3 years, with an option to extend it for another 3. This gave the copyright owner a maximum of 6 years protection. As already noted, German patents were outrageously expensive, and many manufacturers could not afford the fees to register a full patent (fees for German patents were 36 times more than American patent fees). Those that could afford a German patent, had their products stamped with D.R.P. or DRP, which stands for Deutsches Reichspatent. Such a patent granted the patent holder a full 15 years protection." (please see D.R.G.M.: An Early 20th Century German Copyright - The Bassic Sax Blog | The Bassic Sax Blog)

    Looks like someone replaced the swastika insert.

    Looking at the creases the swastika may have had a sticker placed over it. I would try to slowly remove it.

    Dear kirby,

    Very interesting hint. Maybe do you know who/which organisation wore such buckles?
