This is an attractive WH (Heeres) specific lapel-pin (ie. 'Brosche') as was intended to signify war-blinded staff-members of the: 'Deutsche Wehrmacht' (ie. 'Kriegsblinden') being a non-maker-marked- and neatly enamelled specimen that comes in an overall very nice- (and IMO only minimally used-), condition. The badge - which is executed in nicely enamelled- and copper-based metal - comes in a sligthly used- and/or worn condition and still retains all of its golden-yellow- (ie. black-) coloured enamelled surface. It is totally void of a makers'-designation and depicts the 3 black-coloured dots and integrated IC-sign as to be expected. The nicely preserved badge has an approximated diameter of 3 cms. and comes mounted on its (functional) and original pin- ie. catch set-up. The 'Brosche' originates from a private household in Germany and was never before part of a collection. I deem that I have priced this interesting - and with certainty rarely seen! - 'Brosche für Kriegsblinden' accordingly!
The very attractive lapel-pin - which has been IMO only minimally been used ie. worn - has a very nicely preserved age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it is showing normal wear but is totally void of any (enamel-) damage (as can be seen on the pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are noticable. The badge shows moreover a minimally tarnished- (ie. somewhat darkened-) finish as can be seen from the pictures. This example - which has a bright-red-coloured- (ie. enamelled) area - comes mounted on its regular pin-/pin-catch-set-up which is naturally still fully functional and/or present. These attractive - and truly rarely seen! - specific Austrian party-badges (ie.: 'Parteiabzeichen') differ slightly from their German counterparts and come not that often for sale. I deem that I have priced this attractive Austrian-'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin-/ie. party badge according to its comparative rarity and/or desirability!
The detailed lapel-pin (ie. 'Mitgliedsabzeichen') is executed in silver-toned metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') and is a nicely preserved example that shows some moderate age, wear and/or staining but that shows no defaults whatsoever. The lapel-pin is nicely marked and shows a: 'RzM-36'-designation on its back (as can be seen on the pictures). The lapel-pin - which comes mounted on its long-sized- and functional pin - is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken-Abzeichen'-catalogue, wherein a similar example is given the unique reference-number (nr. 5706A). The piece on offer was IMO never cleaned nor polished and shows some regular age and staining. A similar example is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin-catalogue wherein it is given a unique reference-number (4130A). Simply an attractive example of an N.S.K.K.- (ie.: 'National Socialistisches Kraftfahr Korps'-) related so-called: 'Mitgliedsabzeichen' that is IMO accordingly priced!
This is an attractive - and totally undamaged! - example of a: DLV (ie. 'Deutscher Luftsportsverband'-) related so-called: 'Segelflieger-C-Abzeichen' (being an unmarked example that retains a fully undamaged enamelled surface) that comes in an overall very nice- (albeit moderately used and/or worn-), condition. The attractive badge shows three white-coloured 'Schwingen' and is thus an example of the so-called: 'C-Klasse' (ie. being a: 'Segelflieger-C-Abzeichen' or: glider-pilots badge of the C-class). These smaller-sized badges were worn by members of the DLV but were also worn by 'regular' LW-staff on the standard LW tunics such as the 'Fliegerbluse' and/or other tunics. The badge originates from a German private household and is a bit dirty and shows some age and/or wear. The white- and blue-coloured and neatly enamelled piece - which has an approximate diameter of only 2,3 cms. - is void of any makers'-designation and has truly nice enamel which is completely void of any damage: it is just a bit tarnished and somewhat darkened by age. The pin comes mounted on its neat 'button-hole'-set-up. A similar example is also figured in the 'Heering-Hüsken'-lapel-pin-catalogue wherein it is given a unique reference-number (8816I) and is given an estimated value of 95 Eu. Simply an attractive example of this 'DLV'-related so-called: 'Segelflieger-C-Abzeichen'!
The attractive lapel-pin - which has been IMO moderately used ie. worn - has a nicely preserved age-patina and has most certainly never been cleaned nor polished: it is showing normal wear but is totally void of any (enamel-) damage (see pictures): just some regular wear ie. minimal scratches are noticable. The badge shows moreover a minimally tarnished- (ie. somewhat darkened-) finish as can be seen from the pictures. This example - which has a bright-red-coloured- (ie. enamelled) area - comes mounted on its desirable 'button-hole'-set-up which is naturally still fully functional and/or present. I deem this an attractive 'N.S.D.A.P.'-membership-pin-/ie. party badge that is IMO priced according to its truly very nicely preserved condition!
This is an attractive, smaller-sized (ie. only 2 x 1,5 cms. sized-), multi-coloured- and/or neatly enamelled DRK (ie. 'Deutsches Rotes Kreuz') so-called: civil-attire badge (or: 'Zivilabzeichen des D.R.K.') being a maker- (ie. 'E.L.M.'-) marked example that bears a: 'Ges.Gesch.'-patent-pending designation on its back and that comes in an overall nice (albeit clearly used and/or moderately worn- but fully undamaged), condition. The piece comes mounted on its (still functional) pin- ie. pin/catch-set-up. The tiny piece has a stunning (and as stated totally undamaged!) enamelled surface and was IMO never cleaned nor polished and is somewhat stained ie. tarnished. Simply a nice example that is IMO accordingly priced!
The lapel-pin - which is executed in silver-toned metal (ie. 'Buntmetall') - is a nicely preserved example that shows some moderate age, wear and/or staining but has no defaults whatsoever.

The piece on offer was IMO never cleaned nor polished and shows some regular age and staining. I deem that I have priced this attractive 'N.S.K.O.V.'-lapel-pin accordingly!
The cross - which is a non-vaulted- (ie. non-converse-) shaped and IMO fairly early-period- and/or magnetic example - retains an attractive age-patina and/or nice, pronounced detail as to be expected. This example - which is an evident and maker- (ie. '6.'-) marked specimen as was produced by the maker: 'Fritz Zimmermann' based in the town of Stuttgart - comes naturally firmly mounted on its original- (and naturally unaltered and/or fully functional-) flute-shaped pin and/or typical catch (-set-up). The cross shows a neatly 'blackened'- and/or fairly 'satin-like' finish having a partly 'denazified' swastika-area (as can be seen on the pictures). The cross has clearly been issued and/or worn and is still a bit stained and/or dirty (it was never cleaned nor polished though. I deem that I have priced this 'Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse' by the: 'Fritz Zimmermann'-company according to its somewhat damaged condition!
The tiny badge - which is truly darker-red-coloured and is somewhat 'darkened' caused by normal age ie. wear - is a detailed example showing an: 'RzM - M1/6'-marking on its back (as can be noticed on the pictures). The tiny lapel-pin was IMO never cleaned (as stated is some darkened age-patina present and/or visible) but the pin truly shows no enamel damage whatsoever (it was most certainly never cleaned nor polished). This is the version having a regular 'pin- ie. catch set-up which is naturally present and/or fully functional. Simply an attractive example that will be hard to be upgraded!
This is a truly attractive - and actually rarely seen! - HJ- ie. BDM (ie. 'Hitlerjugend' or: 'Bund Deutscher Mädel') so-called: 'Halstuch' (ie. neck-scarf) being a black-coloured- and/or: linnen-based example that still shows its period 'RzM'-etiket attached and that comes with its (natural-coloured- and/or: genuine leather-based) 'scarf-knot' as issued-, worn- and/or recently found. The piece was clearly used- ie. worn and does show some minimal damaged areas (ie. tiny holes) as can be seen on the pictures. The piece is executed in typical (somewhat shiny and black-coloured-) linnen-based cloth and shows as stated above its period 'RzM'-etiket attached (that reads: 'Halstuch nach Vorschrift der HJ'): this etiket shows some minimal wear and/age but is still clearly readable (as can be seen on the pictures). It should be mentioned that most HJ- (ie.BDM-) related 'Halstücher' that appear on todays' market are regrettably copies: the example on offer here is naturally a 100% period specimen: I deem that I did price this neat youth equipment-piece according to its unmistaken rarity and/or desirability!
