    Default Reichsbanner Youth buckle

    Hello lads!! Not sure if I ever posted this buckle on this forum. It's a Reichsbanner buckle that I'm quite fond of. In good condition with the "dirty" prongs that are found on other buckles. Has anyone ever been able to ID the maker who used these types of prongs on their buckles?

    Cheers!

    Very nice buckle, Rob! I think perhaps just Reichsbanner rather than "youth" as I think that one is the attached buckle from CG (although I could well be wrong here.) I still need to get a Reichsbanner buckle. I love the "ugly" claws too... Interestingly, in my experience these seem to always appear on the same type box with it's particular slot catch and "ears". It is a distinctive maker, I think. Attached here also is my DRK displaying the ugly claws and these features. Best,

    Hey Adam....not sure what you mean about the one on CG's site? If you mean that my example is the one pictured there - I doubt it as I've had this example in my collection for years. You've got a nice DRK buckle there. I have other buckles with the same prongs....will go through them and see if I can find them. I think one is an SA example.

    Cheers man!

    Hey Rob. What I meant to say is that I think the buckle you posted is simply Reichsbanner and not Reichsbanner Youth per se. As I understand it, the buckle featured on the CG site is the Reichsbanner jugend buckle proper. Attached here are images of an SA out David's extensive and exmplary collection and which features the "ugly claws" with the related box features. Bring on the ugly prongs!

    Best,
    Adam

    I get it Adam! Thanks for clearing that up. I found one of the other buckles that have these prongs - and as you've noted...it's the same box on the buckle: certianly another characteristic of this unknown maker. This buckle is a silver SA/nskk example with sunwheel swastika. Here are some pics....

    Cheers!
