That is indeed in a better condition, I do not think that I have ever seen one so clean.

Thank you for showing it.

Cheers

Don, thanks! I have washed it slightly. Water and soap do miracles. One more sign from this series.

Ah! So that is your secret :D I do not clean my badges, I prefer to leave them as I find them.

The Hessen-Nassau is a nice piece as well. Thank you for showing it.

Cheers

I thought I'd brush the dust off this old topic & bring it to the top again.

Here is a rather over polished & tired Kreis Leitung Heidelberg, 4131q (4118h for those with the 1997 copy)....

And then this beauty Kreisleitung Neustadt in Schw. This is for Neustadt in Schwarzwald, an area in the Black Forest region.

:) All these nice and interesting badges and I still have yet to add any examples to my collection.

I'd best turn in my enamel badge collectors card. :)

Well done everyone. I appreciate seeing these.

Two more nice pieces Don, and another different named reverse. Really like the green one. Like my colour when seeing it!

Elsass Opfering

Not seen in the thread so far, also not shown in Hüsken's 2010 catalogue. All metal 2,3cm dia.detailed back with makers name - Foerster & Barth - Pforzheim, RZM and M 9/7 marks. Why its not in the catologue, I've no idea,don't think its especially rare, at the time of writing Weitze has three on offer.

A nice piece Alec.  This is shown in the Hüsken catalogue, but it is listed in one of the rear sections.  I'm not at home at the moment so do not have access to my copy, but there is a section after the main badges that has badges of other areas & Elsass has a seperate entry.

 

Thanks for posting

Don

Just found it. Section B "Deutsche organisationen in abgetrennten gebieten"

B3 page 403, he shows a painted version which I suspect has been done post war.

cheers

Thanks for the posts Don, after reading them I did find the piece on page 403. Glad you mentioned the suspect paint work, I was wondering, as on mine and Weitze's badges there not one speck of paint / enamel on any of them, to me and mine hasn't a scratch there never was any paint. A compliment, this thread and others in the enamel & membership database are head and shoulders above anything else on offer, I could find in any of the military forums, when it comes down to in-depth detail.

Agreed, there is a wealth of information here. Much appreciated by me. Thanks to all who contribute and share  their knowledge and collections.

Came across this Opferring membership pass - different design from Don's shown in post 5, maybe due to different area - Württemberg 1939. Swastikas blacked out.
