Unidentified "large swastika" buckle ?

Article about: David, thanks for the flowers - I think these swastika buckles were made for all the right wing groups in the Weimar period. For example, the Deutschvölkische Freiheitspartei ( German Völkis

    David,

    I met Gerolf last weekend, who told me, that the fair was not ver succesful for him, too.
    But what about the rest of Marcs collection he sold - so many different SA buckles - not even one variant for you ?

    cheers

    David,

    Another large swas denoting the "mobile" or "sunwheel" profile albeit it is on a 40mm buckle. Reverse shows the alligator belt fastener and center buckle catch.

    Gerolf was one of the German collectors that I had the pleasure of meeting at Kassel. You are correct in thinking that I met up with Marc and a few buckles did exchange hands. All to be posted at a later date and I think you will be pleasantly surprised. The regular SA buckles of Marc were really of little interest to me as I already hold examples of the ones then being sold. As you probably now know, they have been sold as a massive group to a well known German dealer.

    A super buckle and actually, I think it is very unusual and quite rare. My thoughts to these large "sun wheel" emblem buckles is youth rather than NSDAP "Kampfzeit" related. Do you have any ideas or theories yourself ?

    Regards,

    David

    Probably "Deschler", rather than the usually attributed "Deumer".

    Many thanks for that David, and interesting Mmmm. BTW when you mention Gerolf, do you mean Gerolf Berg?

    I did not catch the chaps surname and had rather lazily assumed that there was only one well known "Gerolf" within the German buckle collecting community. Perhaps Thomas can help me out on this one ?

    David, Ben

    yes, Gerolf is not a name you find in every schoolroom, so David,
    it wasn't "lazily assumed" - you just trusted your feeling.
    Gerolf is also known. because of his examples in the Angolia book and in the Hartung book.
