Post 1938 Flieger HJ Assortment

First photo are post 1938 pattern Flieger HJ "slip on" straps from Bann 663 Litzmannstadt, Obergebiet Ost, HJ Gebiet 38 Wartheland, and Bann 664 Schwetz, Obergebiet Ost, HJ Gebiet 38 Wartheland. These two Bann numbers are some of the most commonly found Flieger HJ straps. It is rumored a large cache was uncovered in Eastern Germany in a former RZM store in the mid 1980's. It is odd that the shoulder straps are common but the matching sleeve triangle is difficult to find. This 664 strap appears to have seen some heavy use, as evidenced by the distortion of the strap and the fraying of the piping. Also note the remanents of an RZM control tag on the backside. $ 65.00 EACH
Second photo is a post 1938 pattern Flieger HJ "sew in" pair from Bann 250 Goslar, Obergeibit Nord, HJ Gebiet 8 Niedersachsen. The single pip represents the HJ rank of Kameradschaftsfuhrer. This pair also has a snap on the back for ease of removal from a uniform. $225.00

Third photo is a post 1938 pattern Flieger HJ "sew in" single from Bann 138 Siegen-Wittgenstein, Obergebiet West, HJ Gebiet 9 Westphalia. This one has seen some wear. Note the black snaps on the reverse for ease of removal from uniforms for laundering. Also note the glue remenants from an RZM control tag. $80.00

 Fourth photo is a set of Flieger H.J. from Bann 544 Grieskirchen, Obergebiet Südost H.J. Gebiet Oberdonnau located in Austria. Note that one strap has a R.Z.M. control tag affixed. True matching sets should only have one strap with a tag as they were sold in pairs. $225.00
