Abzeichen 1. Mai 1936 byDultgen & Schutte Solingen-Wald. Introduced in 1933, the NSDAP declared May 1st the “Day of National Work” as an official state holiday to celebrate laborers and the working classes. It is constructed out of a die struck aluminum-alloy base that has been silver washed. The round shaped obverse depicts an old style plow, riveting hammer and downward pointing broad sword behind a German national eagle and reads “1. Mai 1936” (top left) along with a small “RK” (bottom left). The reverse shows a full back and a horizontally crimped on well working steel pin. It is also maker marked. It measures 1 3/8 in diameter. A great start to collecting all the May day badges!
