made?....50's?....60's?........

I would think that it is a newer Repro especially with the different Blut und Ehre Etch

I once heard somewhere (do not know if it is true) that Hubertus were a company that used up old war time stock and used the same casts used for original HJ's and made them post war.

That is very interesting............
Hubertus currently has a web site that indicates
they are still in Solingen and operate as a Subsid
of Kuno Ritter...Which was an original HJ maker...
Although it is unclear when this merger took place.

Maybe........War time suplus HJ parts and/or tooling
from Ritter were put together and marketed under the
Hubertus Brand? There is a mystery here that may
someday come to light.........Dave
