    The 1949 is probably not a date but rather an item number. The style of construction suggests a much earlier date than 1949-hence my guess at a possible luggage strap buckle useage. These buckles may also be missing the tongue-as can be seen by the small dent where it was supposed to rest. Almost certainly, the swastika is a lucky sign rather than a political symbol. By 1949, swastika's were not particularly welcome sights, but on a turn of the century piece of traveling luggage, a lucky sign would make perfect sense.

    ah, maybe! as it was in with some post cards from 1927, but what made me think it was a wartime piece,was a dagger handle in the box of things with it, that looks like some sort of nazi issue piece that has had the metal symbols taken out, i can post a pic of it later,
    but from everyones comments ,its not looking as interesting as i first thought,,

    The 'Rd' embossed on the reverse is for 'registered' and the number is the registration number. I think looking at some lists 719492 is for non-textile produced between 1909 and 1950.

    Mark.

    wow, thanks,
    is there any way to find out who made it and where,
    and even if they made any items for military or political use ,,
