    Yes I did notice that Widukind. It is indeed a rare triangle, you are fortunate to have that in your collection. I am happy to see so many great straps as well. The photographs are excellent.

    I was reading some period stuff on the Landjahr just now and was reminded of this excellent thread. I came across a couple of dates which confirm the dates given by Widukind earlier on. Although there is no confirmation on whether there was a male and female Landjahr triangle (first pattern) I thought the info would still be useful.

    In the original law which introduced the Landjahr on the 29th of March 1934 it is stated that the boys and girls were to wear the Landjahr patch which had been created by the Ministry for Sciences, the Arts and Education. This must be the black one. As I say, there is no mention of different triangles for males and females but certainly by the 20th of July 1935 the black version had been replaced by the green version as the green one is clearly mentioned as being in use in the 'Dienstanweisung für das Landjahr' published on that date.

    I was sort of hoping that this forum would bring out a few more of these black ones, but none surfacing so with only one known example surviving so far that would indicate extreme rarity and the actual extent of it's issue. It is of course hard to tell from period photos but no real data from this source either so was it actually issued ??

    Hi Garry,
    I thank you for approving my theory as well as dates. However, the triangle Landjahr with yellow letters has really existed since I saw it in a large collection in Hamburg. Sorry, I have no photos.
    Here is the comment of the German specialists: the black triangle Landjahr with white letters was worn by boys and girls and was officially authorized by the Reichsjugendführung from 1934 until the end of 1935. In contrast, the black triangle with the yellow letters was only allowed in some Länder and has never been formalized by the Reichsjugendführung. This is strange for an organization that wanted the order and discipline ......now, each of us will be free to interpret this version.
    Best Regards
    Eric

    No probs Eric. This is an interesting thread and I hope more comes to light. Do the German collectors have anything in the way of period references or other references?

    Unfortunately not. Me too I had doubts, and when the book of Sarris was published, I did not know what to think. The photo of Debertex is a proof

    I've been told by Jeff Hammond that he once examined a black with yellow lettering Landjahr "hands on" and was sure it was period after having it in his possesion. He's been collecting for a long time with exposure to a lot of items, I usually rely on what he says as being accurate.

    Just so that I'm not misunderstood here :) I'm not placing the black/yellow in doubt. I haven't mentioned them as I have nothing here which mentions them either. Seems clear though that black/white is the 'norm' with black/yellow needing a nice period reference to be the cherry on the top.
