    Default Another SA added to collection

    Hey gang....I enjoy SA buckles because there are so many variants out there. I was able to acquire another that I did not have yet (different looking eagle). It's unreal how many different types of SA buckles there are. I think that goes to show just how many makers of SA buckles were out there (big and small) before the RZM started issuing licenses.

    Anyhoot....I like the high eagle on this one. I'm sure I have seen this type before - but I didn't have one until now. I have no idea who the maker could be.

    Cheers!

    Nice collection Rob, are any of the SA's marked or a modification over a DJ or DT buckle?

    Thanks Hal! I'd love to see it!

    Hey Ben! Thanks buddy! Glad you like it .... The buckle is made of brass. I often consider giving these a "shine"...but I hold back as I like the 60-70 year old patina and dullness...

    Hi JK! Glad you like it!! I assume you meant to say NSKK? There is quite a bit of controversy over this issue. Some collectors believe that the NSKK had the same type buckle as the SA but that was silver and not gold (brass). Other collectors believe that both the SA and NSKK had the same buckle and the colour of the buckle was decided upon what colour buttons were on the tunics.
    I really can't decide for myself. For now, I continue to call these silver SA's NSKK buckles - but do appreciate that this idea is under review!
    Here's a pic of the silver buckles I was talking about.....
    Hope that helps!
    Cheers!

    Hi Joe.....what do you mean by DT? As for DJ buckles - the only DJ buckles that were modified - were modified into HJ buckles. I have seen a few of these but have yet to pull the trigger and acquire one.

    As far as markings go - most SA's are unmarked. That raises the price somewhat for the marked examples. I have a couple that are marked. Here are the markings from my Linden/Funk and Overhoff examples.

    CHeers!
