New addition - HJ/DJ conversion buckle

Article about: This is my newest buckle, a HJ/DJ conversion, originally made by Steinhauer & Luck, Lüdenscheid. I bought this one from a private seller with the help of another forum member.

    I have another question. (Big surprise)

    Were the conversions performed only on the normal-sized DJ buckles, or the small ones as well?

    Thanks again, Ben! That was my thought as well, because I've read that the small buckles weren't regulation.

    Just looked in the Angolia and Nash books, there are no examples in there

    It would be a very special thing if one were to be found.

    You would have to stamp out a small roundel like on the 35 mm SA style. Never say never but I doubt they ever produced a small HJ roundel. I think it was Bill X that had a HJ with a pebbled field.

    The small DJ buckles (referred to as "children's buckles"), not being regulation items, were expressly excluded from conversion in the order published in "Reichsbefehl".

    Kind regards

    That is excellent information. Thanks!

    I have (2) pebbled HJ (Bills buckle is now in my collection) it is an Assman prototype, and the other is a solid nickel Weimar buckle blank that was repurposed at the factory (pebbling is on the reverse of buckle)
    I will try and post links to them on another site if you would like

    I would love to see them! The Weimar conversion sounds especially interesting.
