In Issue Carton - SA-Sportabzeichen in Silber by W. Redo of Saarlautern. The Silver SA Sports Badge was a service award (as opposed to a sports badge) awarded to those whose receipt was tied to regular repetitive exercises, similar to a sports instructor. It is constructed out of a die stamped steel base that has been silver washed. The obverse depicts an upright vertical broad sword, in front of a mobile swastika, which is surrounded by an eight piece laurel leaf wreath that is tied together at both sides. The semi-hollow back reverse shows the stamped outline along with the third pattern inscription, (1939-44): “Eigentum der Obersten S.A. Führung” (Property of the SA Supreme Command), and is maker marked “W. Redo Saarlautern”. The pin, hinge and catch assembly are all in well working condition! It measures 1 13/16 inches wide by 2 5/16 inches tall. The whole badge retains beautiful detail and bright silver wash! It comes in an extremely rare issue carton! It is created out of pressed cardboard staples to each corner. There is a lacquered paper insert. This piece comes with a COA from Militaria-Berlin. This is the first I’ve seen and owned. Not cheap and another one will never come up in your lifetime!
