    Default HJ - Landjahr - How Rare really ARE Items?

    Hello,

    I know very little regarding HJ except the basics. No experience with HJ regalia.

    It seems to me there was a push for the Landjahr, but it was not meet with huge success. This accounts for the rarity of Landjahr items?

    But are Landjahr items really that rare, to justify the prices for membership books (90 Euro) and patch (175 Euro), as compared to HJ-Flieger (DLV, NSFK) or HJ-Marine?

    Thanks

    Hi Luther

    I dont think Landjahr is any rarer or more collectable.

    This patch is on route to me - cost $175

    Some Landjahr items are not exactly what I would consider rare, but more "difficult" to find than other branches of the HJ. One example is shoulder straps. The tan background second pattern straps from 1934 period can be found on several dealer sites right now in singles and pairs. Try finding a post 1938 black background set or a first pattern with the "Munchen" style L and they are scarce. The green background triangle can also be found on several sites, but look for the first pattern black background with yellow or white lettering triangle that was used for a few months in 1934 and you will search for a long time before one comes up.

    I find Flieger and Marine HJ items a lot more plenfiful than Landjahr.

    Examples: Tan background second pattern easy to find. Black background a little more difficult to find, mostly find singles for sale, pairs seem more scarce.

    I agree with Nick and Darin.

    Probably the most scarce Landjahr item is the early pattern black background triangle that was used for a few months in 1934. There were male and female versions. This BDM version was sold by Wietze and now belongs to an HJ collector in France.
