    Ewan an amazing example at an amazing price.. I will add some pics of a few of mine tomorrow..
    for those of you who these are new to;
    the DJ buckle was phased out in 1937 and by early 1938 all HJ and DJ boys were to wear the HJ buckle..
    3 companies were allowed to retrofit DJ buckles into HJ buckles in an effort to save the parents money if they chose...
    these buckles which are commonly called "HJ conversion buckles" are the result. They were only made for aprox 6 months, and are quite rare..
    these commonly sell in the $150-250 here in the US
    so your $45 was an amazing deal!!!!
    congrats on a great buckle!!!

    here are the 3 different eagle designs which exist on HJ DJ conversion buckles
    the RZM tasked 3 makers with doing the conversions..
    CTD
    Overhoff
    Assmann

    there is still a mystery as 2 of the 3 designs are easily identifiable as Overhoff and Dicke.. but the third design is an unknown design.. I have gone through 200 + HJ buckles in my collection which are standard (non conversion) HJ and I can not find a match to this eagle design.. so if it is Assmann , why would they use a totally new unknown eagle which is not associated with them, nor used again for production???????
    we may never know...

    3- unknown eagle ...is this Assmann ???
    out of my 10 conversions , 5 are these unknown design..
    Assmann was the most prolific maker of HJ buckles..making more than any other maker by far!!
