Neat, semi-enamelled RLB- (ie. 'Reichluftschützbund') 'Zivilabzeichen' or: civil-attire badge (of the first pattern) bearing a patent-pending- (ie. 'Ges.Gesch.'-) designation on its back
This is an attractive example of a first pattern- (and/or typically silvered- and neatly semi-enamelled!) so-called: RLB- (ie. 'Reichluftschützbund') so-called: 'Zivilabzeichen' (or: civil-attire badge) being a nicely preserved example that is totally void of a makers'-designation but that is bearing a clearly present patent-pending- (ie. 'Ges.Gesch.'-) marking on its back and that comes in an overall nice- (albeit just moderately used- ie. worn-), condition. The piece has stunning (and totally undamaged!) blue-coloured enamel and comes naturally mounted onto its original, pin- ie. pin-/catch-set-up (as can be seen on the pictures). The piece has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished and is just a tiny bit stained ie. tarnished. A similar badge is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin-catalogue wherein it is given the unique reference number: '5909A'. Simply an attractive and desirable 'RLB'-related item: hard to encounter a nicer example for a more interesting price!
