Superb - and never used nor worn! - early- (ie. mid-) war-period example of an: 'SA-Sportabzeichen in Bronze' being a nicely maker- (ie. 'W. Redo - Saarlautern'-) marked example that comes stored in its period box (ie. etui)
The very attractive - and I deem early- (ie. mid-) war-period - SA-sports'-badge is as stated nicely maker-marked on its back with the makers'-designation: 'W. Redo' as based in the town of Saarlautern and also bears the usually encountered inscription: 'Eigentum d. Obersten SA-Führung' (as is visible on the back of the sword as more often). The badge - which comes naturally mounted onto its functional- (and unaltered!) pin- (ie. catch-) set-up - is void of any wear and was never cleaned nor polished: truly all of its original- and/or (fairly bright-coloured- and/or golden-bronze-toned-) finish is fully present and/or neatly preserved: moreover, does it retain its period-applied (and somewhat glossy) 'Brennlack' (as can be seen on the pictures). The badge is just a tiny bit stained ie. dirty caused by decades of storage. Of additional interest is, of course, that is specimen came stored in its period (somewhat simpified) carton-based box (ie. etui) as issued and stored for decades. This etui is totally void of any makers'-mark- or designation (as more often). It is obvious that these etui’s are actually X-times more rarely encountered than the badge itself and this is just the first such time that I have such a completely untouched set on offer. Simply a very attractive and I deem early- ie. mid-war-period- and/or period-'boxed' example that is with certainty accordingly priced!
