Here we have a Sturmabteilung (SA) Sportabzeichen in Bronze by W. Redo of Saarlautern! The Bronze SA Sports Badge was award to military and paramilitary personnel, under the age of 35, who passed the required criteria in physical fitness, military defense and field exercises, within a 12 month period. It is constructed out of a die stamped steel base that has been bronze washed and black burnished. 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 D. Obersten S.A.-Führung" (Property of the SA Supreme Command), and maker marked "W. Redo Saarlautern". It has the correct pin, hinge and catch assembly. All in well working condition! It measures 1 13/16 inches wide by 2 5/16 inches tall. The whole badge retains good detail and bronze wash with honest wear.
