    Hello Lauri,

    great scarf-knots. Textbook manufacturing with the correct natural color. With your knots the tag is attached
    as according to 1938.

    I have scanned the manufacturing-regulations for them from 1936 and 1938, which were published in the
    "Herstellungsvorschriften" (manufacturing-regulations) from the Reichszeugmeisterei.

    Alkor is the material all of your knots are made from. It is no real leather.

    Beginning of 1936: Lederknoten;
    Later that year and 1938: Halstuchknoten.
    In the beginning, so until the mid of 1936 the knots were from real leather and should have a
    quite "pale" look. But we all know that darker leather types were in use, due to the fact the
    boys brought them from their old organizations (when they earlier had been in another youth-
    organization or whatever).
    It is also obvious it was allowed to have three or four woven strands and were as such worn
    by HJ, as well as DJ, BDM and
