N062973 NSKK EM/NCO'S BELT BUCKLE.(Koppelschloß)
BACKGROUND: The development of the NSKK, National Sozialistisches Kraftfahr Korps, (National Socialist Motor Corps), can be traced back to 1923 when the SA introduced a Kraftfahr Abteilung, (Motor Section), to transport personnel as required. In 1928 the SA Motor section was expanded to Kraftfahrstaffeln, (Motor Squadrons). In an attempt to create a national motor corps the NSAK, National Sozialistisches Automobil Korps, (National Socialist Automobile Corps), was formed in April 1930 as a NSDAP auxiliary organization subordinate to the SA. In early 1931 Adolf Hühnlein was appointed as Chief of the NSAK and proposed a name change to NSKK, which was officially accepted in April 1931. Before the introduction of a standardized belt buckle the NSKK used the SA pattern rectangular buckle in a variety of styles usually nickel or chrome-plated over brass or steel.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Approximately 64mm x 49mm (for the standard 45mm belt), one-piece alloy construction NSKK buckle with nickel/silver plating. The small pattern eagle, with its head outside the bottom rope border with a spray of oak-leaves, is clutching a wreath encircling a sunwheel swastika. The catch, prong bar and prongs all intact. Marked ‘RZM’ and ‘1' for Meyer und Franke, Luckenwalde.
