Fourth photoe is a 1938 Pattern late war General HJ "sew in" pair for Bann 945 Reichwerke Hermman Goering, Obergebiet Nord, HJ Gebiet 8 Niedersachsen. Note the red RZM control tags on the reverse. The ink stamp indicates the manufacturers name, the A4 designation is for textile manufacturing, the large C possibly represents the price of the tag, and the printed number at the bottom is the serial number of the straps. The name of the specific manufacturer can be traced through the ink stamp.This manufacturer is Rudolf Langer from Weipert in the Sudetenland-district, who got his RZM permission (anyway announced) February 11, 1939. Niedersachsen and Sudetenland are not really in the same area. This information is difficult to obtain as very few collectors have access to the RZM regulations which state who was permitted to manufacture items, and when they were permitted. Also note the straight pattern buttonhole, the "keyhole" pattern is more common. $175.00
I live in Southern California, USA. I collect HJ and DJ shoulder straps and boards, and study HJ history. I also collect DJ Sigrune patches. Some of you probably know me from several of the militaria collectors forums I am active on. Enjoy the blog and feel free to ask questions, if I don't have the answer, someone I know probably does. Keep in mind this information may not be entirely accurate, but I have done my best with reference materials and the help of others that share the hobby.
I am always intersted in adding to my collection. If you have or know of any HJ/DJ shoulder straps or boards, or any interesting D.J. Sigrunes for sale email email@example.com The prices here are FIRM. These straps now exceed SS items in value, don't blame me. If you want them you have to pay the prices. Go ahead and try to find some of these items elsewhere, you won't find them and will just waste a lot of time looking. Don't waste our time with low ball offers or pointless negotiations. I might seem rude, but that's just how it is. Payment and shipping terms will be discussed with serious buyers, again don't waste my and your time if you are not serious.
