N042677 DJ MEMBER'S BELT & BELT BUCKLE. (Koppelschloß)

BACKGROUND: The DJ, Deutsche Jungvolk, (German Youth), originated in Vienna Austria in 1929, and was eventually to become the young branch of the Hitler Jugend, (Hitler Youth), for boys from ten to fourteen years old. The sigrune emblem first became associated with the DJ on November 9TH 1929, the sixth anniversary of the failed Beer Hall Putsch, when the Gauleiter of Vienna presented them with their first official flag, consisting of a black field with a central silver sigrune. The sigrune was adopted as the official emblem of the DJ and was used on assorted insignia including the DJ box belt buckle. Originally DJ members wore a variety of unofficial belt buckles with a small version of the standard SA, Sturmabteilung, (Storm/Assault Detachment), belt buckle being the most common. In 1933 an official DJ box buckle was introduced and utilized until 1936 when in began to be phased in favor of the HJ belt buckle. In 1938 production of the DJ, sigrune belt buckle was discontinued altogether.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Die struck, tombac construction box belt buckle with a nickel/silver plate. The buckle features a smooth background field with a central, vertical, high relief, embossed sigrune. The reverse of the buckle is a mirror image of the obverse. Maker marked "RZM M4/27".
