    I personally have no issues whatsoever with any of the 4 buckles shown.

    The SA buckle with the "upright" swastika, together with the diminutive NSDAP-Jugend buckle, are both well documented and have appeared within the Forum on many occasions.

    As for the SA buckle with the "sun wheel" swastika, although a slightly alarming eagle head design by the elongated beak, I see no issues. Attached are images of a similar buckle and unfortunately, the obverse detail is somewhat worn and distorted. The extended beak is clearly visible though, as is the common striation to the upper ear of the brass box, together with the overall pin and claw configuration.

    What I found most interesting though is the SA buckle with the "mobile" swastika. I think that this is a roundel design and by exact detail, which is seldom seen. Over the years I have only seen a few and attached are images of 2 such buckles. The slight indentation to the under section of the wreath and between the eagles claws, is a distinguishing and "fingerprint" aspect. A common feature however is the eccentricity of the boxes employed to support the roundel. For the one shown, the solder points are odd to say the least, however and again with this roundel, nothing would really surprise me. Although one of the buckles that I have shown displays the first series RZM manufacturers code for Noelle u. Hueck, I think it would be inaccurate to appropriate this roundel to the said company.

    In my opinion, a good trio of SA buckles.

    Regards and best wishes,

    David

    I also like all 4. Love to have the reduced size silver one. I have 6-7 brass ones but only one silver. Great eagle on that one.

    Thanks very much David for sharing pictures and your knowledge. Learn so.much from your answers. And also thanks Kirby you to have learnt from your comments reading through the forum. I looked through the forum and just couldn't find one with the beak but also the poor detail to the leaves that was my main concerns. Thanks again guys much appreciated
