Attractive example of a DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German Red Cross) nurses'-badge as was intended for a: 'Helferin' being a maker- (ie. 'E.L.M.'-) marked example that comes in a fully untouched condition
The attractive badge is - I deem - made-out of silver-coloured 'Buntmetall' and has an immaculate enamelled surface (truly no damages whatsoever can be noticed as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is a clearly maker- (ie. 'E.L.M.'-) marked example that has - I deem - only minimally worn: it has never been cleaned nor polished (and is still a tiny bit stained and/or dirty) and comes of course mounted onto its functional- and/or unaltered pin- ie. pin/catch (-set-up). These badges were also worn by the Germanic volunteers. Next to the mentioned makers'-designation does the piece show a clear 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending-designation (as can be seen on the pictures). A similar example is also figured in the Heering-Hüsken lapel-pin-catalogue wherein it is given the unique reference-number: 5613XA. Simply an attractive DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz' or German Red Cross) so-called: 'Helferin'-badge that is accordingly priced!
