The second piece is a very powerful design, Matt

Seeing that your title has left a wider definition of 'Gau' badges open to interpretation... my only 'Gau' related piece....

That is an imposing design as well. I think I have seen that model utilized for different festivities. Apparently it wasn't an uncommon practice back then- the company that originally introduced the piece retained their rights to the initial design that was utilized for different meetings in the future- it's what happened with Gau Ost Hannover badge (which also, coincidentally, helped determine their maker).

I'll see if I can find the piece I am talking about in my files although it might take a bit.

Meantime- one more Gau badge that became a 'poster child' for the Gau badges in general (no pun intended). Classic design- wreath denoting Victory, swastika, denoting those who took it, and a little snobistic touch in the center for those who did not recognize the piece on the wearer's uniform. Whichever variety it was- It said all that needed to be said.

I was trying to find some information about this plaquette,but didn't find anything.
Does someone saw some awards documents for it or it listed in some catalogue,or in some award lists?
