    Need opinions... possible Chain of Office?

    Recommended Posts

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to help a friend of mine to ID this chain that he got in a grouping. This is only a partial pic but the rest of the chain is the same.

    The only thing I could think of when I saw it was that it is possibly part of one of the chains of office used by Burgermeisters and such worn for ceremonial and official occassions during the Third Reich.

    I did a search on the web and the only pics I could find were one of the central medallion for such a chain but it didn't show the chain itself. The other is this one of Richard Wendler, Mayor of Hof, Germany, and an Obersturmbannfuhrer in the SD wearing the Chains of Office of Mayor.

    Anyhow hoping one of our members will know what it is and would be willing to give some additional information on it. Any additional info would be deeply appreciated!

    Many thanks!beer.gif

    Thanks Pete!!!!cheers.gif That's one that hadn't occurred to me. I did a quick search and believe I've nailed it:


    Now I just have to wait till he has it in hand and can do scans of the back... and then need a confirmation that it's original and I think we've got a winner!

    Shame the gorget isn't with it though.

    Couldn't have done it without your help!jumping.gif
