    These Hammerhead buckles may have been manufactured in Austria. No proof just something I have been told.

    This unmarked HJ I picked recently has been identified as a Rudolf Schanes, Wien. Most likely an oversimplification here, but the rather unique prong bar and prongs are similar.

    It could be from the same company. The ears, catch,solder color and prong bar look similar.

    Hammerhead is the collector name for this type, same thing with the fat chest SS, the cracked wing SS. This is based on the shape of the head or the width of the chest or a die flaw.

    There is an SS EM sleeve eagle that is also called Hammerhead. The eagle's head is more flat on top than on this type buckle. The buckle may have gotten it's name from the sleeve eagle.
