German SS and Deutsche Reichsbahn Belt Buckles
Our next favorite metal detecting find are these German SS and Deutsche Reichsbahn Belt Buckles, found by DUTCH DIGGERS in Germany.
They wrote: “We heard rumors that on a specific location SS soldiers were detained. On that spot, we found two beautiful German Military Belt Buckles. One beautiful preserved Deutsche Reichsbahn belt buckle!”
Informations (Wikipedia.org): “SS belt buckle featuring the motto Meine Ehre heißt Treue. In a National Socialist context, the phrase Meine Ehre heißt Treue refers to a declaration by Adolf Hitler following the Stennes Revolt, an incident between the Berlin Sturmabteilung (SA) and the SS. In early April 1931, elements of the SA under Walter Stennes attempted to overthrow the head of the Berlin section of the Nazi Party. As the section chiefJoseph Goebbels fled with his staff, a handful of SS men led by Kurt Daluege were beaten trying to repel the SA. After the incident, Hitler wrote a letter of congratulations to Daluege, stating SS-Mann, deine Ehre heißt Treue! (“Man of the SS, your honour is loyalty”). Soon afterward, Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, adopted the modified version of this phrase as the official motto of the organisation.”
They are using the Garrett At PRO metal detector.
