    Deutches Adler Order

    Recommended Posts

    I do not know how many of these were awarded, but that shown above is one of the earliest and rarest. The "Verdienstorden vom Deutschen Adler" or Meritorious Order of the German Eagle was instituted in May, 1937. A determining feature of the first produced pattern pieces is that, "...the suspension ring is mounted through a loop affixed directly into the V section of the upper arm...." (Ailsby). "The first pattern design of the 1937 series was short-lived" (Angolia) and "...was awarded for only a few months". (Forman). The second type version had a fan-shaped suspension device.

    One does not see many of these at all. Hope this information is of interest.
