Very intersting, thanks for posting. Never seen these. Is this because the boy turned 10 and graduated to the HJ, or was the SigRune buckle made obsolete at some point?
These were made to comply with new regulations put forth in 1938 stating that the Siegrune buckles were to be replaced with the regular HJ buckle. The option was given to either purchase a new buckle or to have the existing DJ buckle refitted with an HJ roundel. Three firms were licensed to carry out the conversions, but I can't remember which at the moment. I believe it's possible to determine the origin by the roundel characteristics.
Nice conversion and a nicely marked original DJ buckle by Steinhauer & Luck
Thank you, Ben! I'm not a big fan of regular HJ buckles, but these conversions are interesting.
Very interesting indeed , Thanks for posting this one Erno.
2 for the price of one.
After doing a bit more research, I believe that the roundel matches the Overhoff design.
