Deutscher Turnerbund Belt Buckle - German Athletic Asso
Very nice Deutscher Turnerbund belt buckle. This organization was the German Athletic Association and had many sports under its jurisdiction. The belt buckle design is 4 "f"s at right angles. These stand for the the organization motto Frisch, Froh, Fromm and Frei whic translates to Fresh, Happy, Pious and Free. This buckle is a high quality brass example. Two solder points hold the silvered device in place. the device is a fancier example then usual with ribbed "F"s. very nice overall look and great condition with normal age wear. Nice, hard to find buckle.
