Here’s a rare one, with a unique eagle! It is constructed out of a die struck, zinc-alloy base that has been silver washed. The oval shaped obverse depicts a rifle and bayonet below a Heer closed winged eagle clutching a mobile swastika within its talons. This is all surrounded by an acorn and oak leaf wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The reverse of the badge displays a semi-hollow back and is unmarked. It has a steel, soldered on; sheet metal hinge, rectangular plate round wire catch and sturdy round wire pin. They all remain in well working condition and are all magnetic. Alois Rettenmaier would be my best guess at a maker. The details and silver wash continue to display wonderfully!
