This is an attractive - and actually not that easily encountered! - Third Reich-period, so-called: 'Deutsches Reiterabzeichen der 3. Klasse (ie. 'in Bronze') being a neatly maker- (ie. 'L.Chr. Lauer'-) marked example that comes in an overall nice- (and I deem only moderately used- and/or worn-), condition. The neat - and detailed - award comes mounted onto its functional (and totally unaltered!) pin and/or catch(set-up). It is a somewhat bright-toned but nicely golden-bronze-coloured and/or pronounced specimen as was produced by the: 'L.Chr. Lauer' company as based in Nürnberg and/or Berlin (something that is of course also clearly shown on the back of the badge). The badge also shows a patent-pending-designation (that reads: 'Gesetzlich Geschützt' as can be seen of the pictures). The badge retains all of its bronze-toned finish and was only moderately worn (it might have been cleaned ie. polished over the years). The piece is naturally a Third Reich- (ie. WWII-) era badge and not a 1957-version (something that is easily noticed by the presence of the capital 'R'-character as is visible on the bottom of the badge). Simply an attractive example of this fairly scarcely encountered and decorative award that is accordingly priced!
