N049573 NSBO EM/NCO'S BELT BUCKLE. (Koppelschloß)
BACKGROUND: The RBA, "Reichsbetriebszellenabteilung" (National-factory-cells-department), was founded in January of 1931 and was renamed the NSBO, "Nationalsozialische Betriebszellen Organization" (National-socialist Industrial-cells Organization), in March of that year. This organization acted as the NSDAP's alternative to labor unions and communist worker groups in industrial factories. Officially a national organization, the NSBO was concentrated in the heavy industrial centers, with very little representation outside these areas. The NSBO was absorbed into the DAF in October of 1934, and ceased to exist in March of 1935.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Slightly convex, stamped brass, two-piece construction buckle features, to the obverse, a plain field upon which is a circular face plate featuring an embossed NSBO cog with a hammer and swastika clenched in a fist. The plate is attached by two soldered spots, visible to the reverse. Also to the reverse is its raised buckle catch, and a prong bar with dual prongs, for the belt’s retaining tongue. Makers marked, "O&C" for Overhoff & Cie., Lüdenscheid.
