Here we have a DRL-Sportabzeichen in Gold by Ernst L Müller of Pforzheim. The Gold grade DRL badge was awarded to men and women between the ages of 18-32 who passed the national fitness test for a total of seven consecutive years once the silver badge had been awarded or to individuals over 40 years of age who passed the test within 12 month period. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been gold gilded. Unfortunately the zinc has absorbed all the gold gilding. The oval shaped obverse depicts a centrally placed “DRL” in stylized letters which is surrounded by an oak leaf wreath which is tied together at the bottom with a ribbon and swastika. The reverse correctly displays a; soldered block hinge, soldered rectangular wire catch and flat wire pin. It is also marked “DRGM 35269” and “Ernst L Müller Pforzheim”. It measures approximately 1 ½ inches wide by 1 7/8 inches tall. An in expensive option for a rare piece!
