Post 1938 pattern Signals HJ "sew in" Straps. First photo single from Bann 309 Wurzburg-Stadt, Obergebiet Sud, HJ Gebiet 39 Mainfranken. Note the slight variation in the width of these straps. Signals HJ are the most difficult of the numbered HJ specailty straps to obtain in my experience. They don't get the notoriety of Striefendienst or Marine, but seem to be much more scarce. Signals and Marine HJ are sometimes confused, however Signals have a black background that is much darker than the Blue of the Marine straps.$80.00
Second photo "sew in" pair from Bann 233 Gladbach-Rheydt, Obergebeit West, HJ Gebiet 34 Dusseldorf. Earlier versions used the West/Ruhr Niederhien triangle.$200.00
Third photo Bann 712, Obergebiet West, HJ Gebiet 25 Westmark, Diedenhofen-Stadt single.$80.00
Fourth Photo is a pair from Bann 834 Lubbeck of Gebiet West/Westfalen for a Oberrottenfuhrer also serving as a war volunteer wearing a Kriegsfreiwillege. $240.00
Fifth photo is a pair of "sew on" style from Bann 842 Bingen, Obergebiet West, HJ Gebiet 13 Hessen-Nassua.$200.00
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
