Vintage Good Quality Reproduction Of The Most Desirable Form Of The Third Reich Gorget This is an EXTREMELY rare gorget to find, in any condition. The German Heer (Army) standard bearer's gorget, introduced in 1936, is absolutely one of the most desirable and handsome of all gorgets issued by the third reich.

The insignia is two crossed army standards, with the heer eagle on them, with a highly detailed army eagle in the center, over a sprig of oak leaves. There are also large oak leaf sprigs at either corner, attached to two buttons in the corners. There is some fading to the silver due to wear and age, but it still retains all of the original detail, both on the background and attached insignia. Complete with original 25 link chain.
