Early Style Original German DAF Deutsche Arbeitsfront, (German Labor Front) Belt Buckle Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. With the dissolution of all Free Trade Unions in Germany in May 1933 the Deutsche Arbeitsfront, (German Labor Front), was established to replace the unions and to educate the workers in industry and commerce for smooth and efficient operation of all labor in the Third Reich. In October 1934 the DAF was given official status as a sub-section of the NSDAP and in March 1936 it was recognized as an independent NSDAP affiliated association and granted control of its own monetary budget. In 1934 the first pattern of DAF uniform was introduced for DAF Werkscharen, (Work Squads), and a belt buckle was introduced in late 1935 for wear by all ranks. This worn early example is produced in silvery painted steel (magnetic); the reverse of this buckle features a standard slotted ramp style catch with a steel roll bar and prongs; on reverse is stamped at the catch end, Assmann mark; in good condition used example showing some of the expected age and wear. 100% Guaranteed to be authentic Brought home by a solider as a trophy of war.
