This is a very rare buckle from Der Wandervogel (dated to the 1920’s) showing a wolfhook design in the centre.
Wandervogel buckles are very rare to find and only a handfull is known in the collectorsworld!
A bit of background on Der Wandervogel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wandervogel
The wandervogel movement largely influenced the Hitleryouth and in some aspects in later years the SS with symbolism like runes, pagan rituals and the search for e.g. a common german destiny and history. Although forbidden in 1933 after the NSDAP rose to power, the infuence of the Wandervogel was enormous. Finding buckles, brooches and other artifacts is however very rare!!!
The buckle is quite large and has a diameter of approximately 6 centimeter.
The buckle is in used but collectable condition. The back has some dirt on it.
Try finding another!!!!
