    Not sure what it is but it has nothing to do with the Third Reich.

    The swastika is an ancient symbol, often associated with good luck. This could be one of those pieces. But seeing as it appears to be dated 1949 that would be weird, considering what the swastika represented in the years prior. Possibly a piece for the Nazi/fascist movement in the U.S. post war?

    Perhaps an Asian/Buddhist Swastika...

    1949 would be too close to the end of the war for such an item to be worn in the USA. I am sure anyone wearing such a thing would have been handed his head in a basket by anyone of numerous vets. My guess is it is Asian and has nothing to do with Nazism.

    True. Seems from what Ive looked up that the American Nazi party did not rise up until the later 50's early 60's. Not much further down the road, but I guess far enough.

    Suitcase or trunk strap buckles?

    Never seen one of these in any official TR publications or ever known it to be anything sanctioned by the RZM, dont know what it is to be honest

    I don't think it's marked 1949, looks like there's a 7 in front and a 2 at the end to me.
