  3. Some days ago an SS pin was offered to me . I know the enameled type but this was a type that I never have seen before and I wonder if it is an existing type of badge. I have no picture, but here is a description: -It was silver or silvered, not enameled. -the diameter of the round badge was about 11mm , with a knurled pin attached of about 50mm. -On the badge were depicted the SS runes with a oakleaves wreath around the SS runes. No marks on the backside. Could be a miniature for civil costume use? Has someone of you seen this type of pin before? I thank you in advance. benten

  7. Thank you for posting your badges and your kind replies. Peter, probably the Nazis made this medal and put the names of the nations in their own language (inculding the depicted soldiers) to show the rest of the world their absolute fair election under control of these nations. The hand and the election box should give a nutral idea of a fair election in 1935. I suppose the ribbon is German. A very nice and interesting medal. Cheers, Benten
