A Weimar Diensteintritts-und Traditionsabzeichen Stahlhelmbund. Members of the Stahlhelmbund would receive this membership/traditions badge, featuring the date they joined to the obverse. It is constructed out of a die struck two piece tombak base that has been silver washed and contains black enamel and black paint work, under a protective lacquer coating. The round shaped obverse features the Stahlhelmbund emblem, a silvered M16 style helmet that is marked, in black, with an Iron Cross and “Der Stahlhelm” in gothic script, above two silvered crossed oak leaves and “1931”. This all lies on a black base which is surrounded by a thin silvered border. The reverse is marked (embossed) “STH”, “Ges. Gesch.” along with the recipients initials “LVW” and exact date he joined “3.12.31” and his membership number “1244”. It also shows a soldered on round plate round wire catch, soldered on pad foot sheet metal hinge and coke bottle pin, all of which are in well working condition. The enamel work is in beautiful condition 99%+ and the silvering looks great! It measures 1 3/16 inches in diameter. A nice personalized one!
