Silver DRL w/o Swastika

Recommended Posts

This is a particularly nice example of this unmarked coke bottle pin type-- usually only cut out outside the letters and not inside as well.

Since these are ONLY found "partially pierced" in this DRL swastika-less type, I've always thought they were low bidder rush jobs around the time of the 1936 Olympics.

This is the first one I've seen completely cut out--a new sub variant! beer.gif

Nice one, Darrel beer.gif

What do these go for nowadays, also the gold and bronze version? The version without swastika was very underappreciated for obvious reasons. But though, they seem to become scarcer lately. A lot of people, who disregarded them in the past, are now interested in them.

I think, its an important badge of the area. It was often worn proudly additionally to Combat-Awards(especially WW2) and obviously had a certain esteem to the soldiers.

Surprisingly these are still fairly cheap. They are EXTREMELY hard to find. The "real" ones not made in 1957.

Well the Bronze DRL w/o Swastika arrived a few days ago. It matches the Silver one above for reverse hardware. This one however, has the usual "non-Cutout" features that you usually see with this maker.

Obverse:
