A Reichsparteitagabzeichen by Walter Demmer of Lüdenscheid. The 8th Party Congress was known as the "Rally of Honour" (Reichsparteitag der Ehre, September 8–14). The re-militarization of the demilitarized Rhineland in March 1936 constituted the restoration of German honour in the eyes of many Germans. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc-alloy base that has been silver gilded. The round shaped obverse depicts three kneeling warriors, with shields, protecting a plinth below a national eagle with outstretched wings clutching a wreathed swastika within its talons and surrounded by “1936”, which is all above “Reichsparteitag”. The full back reverse has a well working, horizontal, round plate, tombak pin assembly. The reverse is maker marked "Walter Demmer Lüdenscheid". It measures 1 5/8 inches in diameter. Cool!
