    Hello kc1,

    I did check your thoughts about "ost territories". The drawing, I do show here, is from
    the regulation from 1942 from "Dienstbekleidungsvorschrift für den Geschäftsbereich
    des Reichsministeriums für die besetzten Ostgebiete
    ". It is a look-a-like for the state-
    officials button.

    I am sure the swastika-buttons were not worn by members of eastern related organizations,
    as for example the Zentral-Handelsgesellschaft Ost, nor for those being staff-members for
    the RR (Stabsangehörigen des Einsatzstabes Reichsleiter Rosenberg). For the last there
    is no proof at all (see ZO photo tunic-buttons).

    If the swastika-buttons would have a political connection, they would have been RZM
    marked, I think. But they aren't! They do not even have a manufacturers logo!

    Could be, as the swastika was used in many countries.

    It is also possible the swastika buttons were used by some
    so-called "Vaterländischer Verband", nazi related
    political organization from the early period, but I think the
    form then also would have been in a cataloque.

    Once again thanks for the time all posters have taken on this.
    The sub groups within the The Third Reich system , their interactions and power struggles, are a fascinating area to delve into.
