Hello everybody,

I'm looking for information about the Coburger Abzeichen.

In Max Hans' book, this badge was created by Duke of Coburg Gotha on October, the 14th 1932 to commemorate the Adlf Hitler march of 14-15 october 1922. Only 436 men received this medal, which become on November, the 6th 1936 "Ehrenzeichen der NSDAP".

I want to know if pictures of this badge can be posted (reverse and observe), some close up, box and paper. Thanks for your help.

Do you know where I can find the list of the 436 men who received it?

Well, it tells you how rare these awards are after waiting two years for a reply. The Battle of Coburg is one of my passions and here's a little collage of my Coburg collection including my 1st type badge.

Perhaps someone would like to expand on what types of badge were awarded for Coburg and more importantly, why the significance of the event?

Hitler and a few of his followers were invited by City Officals to attend German Day celebrations in Marxist Coburg in Oct. 1922. Hitler thought that it was important to take his young Party out of Munich for much needed exposure. During the March at Coburg there were many street battles between the Marxists and Nazis. Hitlers follows came out on top and the towns people sided with Hitler over the Marixts from that time forward. If Hitler would have been defeated it may have been the end for the DAP and there would possibly have not been a second world war. So, this was the very first victory for the Party outside on Munich.

The badges that Jim and I posted are 1st type badges and were the actual awarded badges to the recipients in 1932. The later RZM marked badges came about probably in 1936 when it was elevated to a national Honor award of the Party. The later badge had a stronger pin attachment and whas a probable Honor award given out by Hitler or could be purchased as a replacement or extra badge by the original participants of the March. This badge was equal in status to the Blood Order but much more rare being only awarded 436 times.

Cheers Eric. So I take it that the the earlier Type 1 badge is rarer than the later RZM badges ? The list above has 451 names is this accurate?

Hi Eric,

Nice to see your items about that subject. Congrats.

About the list I have found, it is probably complete. Can you confirm it please ?

The original list had 436 names on it. The additional recipients were probably Honor awards given by Hitler which he also did with the Gold Party Badge and Blood Order. The 1st type badge is much more rare than the RZM marked one. The pins on the 1st types were very fragile and were improved on the later badges.

Can you please post front and back images of a RZM marked badge?

There is a large thread on the CB on another forum that I have seen you on where you can see an RZM example. I don't have one in my collection and don't want to post a photo of another collectors badge.

Nice badge Stan. The pin on the later awards is much more substantial. When you look at the back of mine you can understand why so many pins were broken.

Thanks Stan for posting your fine badge to complete this thread. I may add a nice RZM badge to go with my 1st type someday.
