    Had a look at the link. Seeing the reverse I am convinced even more
    the buckle is bogus. Such buckle was also shown in the bigger Angolia,
    but with longer prongs.
    The person who believes it is okay should buy it and add it to his collection.

    Here two images from the Internet about Reichsbahn:

    Thank you sir. Again, my apologizes for the mistake, I honestly didn't know. The dealer showing the buckle for the most part has authentic items on his site, but we all make mistakes.

    It is not needed to apologize. We do not know all what is brought to our attention.
    There are collectors that are convinced about originality, but it is easy to "produce
    this prototype".

    If I may ask a question please, after 1945 was the States Railway referred to something other than Reichsbahn?
    The name Deutsche Reichsbahn (DR) was only retained (for legal reasons) by the state railways of the GDR.

    The state railways of the FRG were called Deutsche Bundesbahn (DB).

    After the 1990 unification, the DR was federalized and continued to exist until the end of 1993 when it was fully amalgamated with the DB to form the Deutsche Bahn AG (1994 - present, still abbreviated DB).

    Post 6: According to 1924 regulations the engine/locomotive should be positioned in length
    of the collar patch
    Is it possible that since the above regulations were ca. 1924 and the tab posted from Collectors Guild was produced ca. 1933 that there was a change during the nine or so years...prior to the change in 1934 of course. Thank you.

    The change was not 1934, but 1935.

    In May 1924 the earlier mentioned collar-patch system was introduced
    (see plate from 1924 with the many possibilities)

    and remained valid until July 1935, when the patch with the winged wheel
    came into being.
    The earlier worn device, worn with the collar-patches, moved from there to a patch,
    to be worn upon te left arm (round with machinewoven symbol). It was phrased as
    Fachabzeichen or Spartenabzeichen.

    In "in-between" change may not have existed officially. No regulations about that were
    announced (I have practically all regulations). Such change is not known either by various German
    railroad-experts. Some wrote a book or booklet and they have not mentioned it either.

    What I know is that for truck-drivers a special patch came into being in 1934. It showed a white metal
    truck upon the collar-patch.
    It is possible someone had made it or ordered the shown Guild patch to make it, but the stand for the
    engine/locomotive is above all wrong, as is the braid. Numbers were not used by the DRB, but for the
    Bahnschutz-organization they were. Maybe someone showed off with his collar-patch. I have available
    many railroad photographs. Such different patch is not shown with any of the photographs.

    Thank you very much for that detailed analyzation. You are a leading, if not the leading asset to this forum due to the mass amount of regulations and information you share so freely.

    You can order, announce changes and publish as much as you want.
    There is always someone who does not know what one is doing.

    See this lady. She did sew on the patch wrong (upside down). She
    should anyway have worn the new pattern, as she also wears the new
    style machinewoven wartime wings.

    To get back to the chap in the photograph in the first post and just for the sake of completeness: He is a basic-level Arbeiter [worker/laborer] as indicated by the simple cloth shoulder boards.

    Oh, never mind. I see that the thread starter has been banned. (Actually, I have the strong feeling he has been recently banned under another user name as well.)
