    Default HJ buckle from JFS with leather tongue

    This is the surprise I mentioned earlier. It came with a lot of HJ/DJ stuff from Austria and need a bit of a clean. It is the first buckle with leather tongue I see, but maybe others have some in their collection.
    The buckle appears to be marked but it needs a clean before reading. All I can see is a 4

    I've not seen one with the leather like this either Matt. If it's good, that's a neat one.

    Matt, buckle and leathertongue belong not together.
    HJ buckles came never with a leathertongue!
    Because of the specific eagle's beak, I would say maker of the buckle could be Dr. Franke.

    Hello Guido, the buckle appears to be marked with a rzm code but I cannot read it. The tongue doesn't appear remounted and the buckle was unmolested and with alot of dirt. This leaves me wondering when and why the tongue was added?

    I fear, you will never find a satisfying answer to this question, Matt.
    The M4 RZM Code for Dr. Franke is: M4/23

    hello Guido, I think you are right. The buckle shows a heavy use and 90%of the chrome finish is gone. I thought of a postwar reutilisation but is has not been denazified,so the question mark about the tongue will remain.

    I wonder if this could be a period application done "at home" by the kid who owned the buckle? It would have been easy enough to acquire a leather tab and have mom sew it on. Just a thought. The stitching is certainly old!
    Good luck! Certainly a cool buckle that asks a lot of questions!
