    Types of fastener on HJ membership badges

    Has anyone noted there are two distinct forms of diamond fasteners

    1 folding tang
    2 pin clasp

    what are the feelings do they date these ie pre 36 and later

    I know the tang type were used on the knives and sometimes headgear not sure if they were worn on the pocket.

    NO NEVER would be on the uniform to much damage would be done

    I believe the ones with folding tangs are the proper headgear insignia whilst the one with the clasp are just chest badges.
