    Yes, these were used by the H.J. in the early period prior to the introduction of the H.J. buckle with the motto and the D.J. buckle.

    I've got a 40mm brown belt that I reckon is HJ, so that's why I'm keen. It's a cheap buckle to be honest, I'm sure I've seen period pics of full size rounded on smaller box?

    Here's a thought, just been checking and as far as I can gather the early HJ's were 35mm and had straight ears. If this is a full size roundel, that puts the buckle at 40mm, and it's got curved ears. That's not an early HJ buckle, but a 40mm SA as mentioned in Angolia Pg. 172

    Additionally, a rarely encountered 40x63mm size was also produced.
    Thoughts anyone?

    This buckle arrived today and it is indeed a 40mm SA, really chuffed with it. The roundel looks to have been there a long time and have no reason to doubt it's a genuine 40mm SA. According to Angolia they are pretty rare, anyone else got one?

    I've posted a pic with a 45mm, 40mm and a 35mm...

    Lenny,


    Glad the buckle arrived safe, i have no reason to believe that the roundel does not belong to the 40mm box, its been on there since day 1 imo.
