A Reichsparteitagabzeichen by B.H. Mayer of Pforzheim. The 8th Party Congress was known as the "Rally of Honour" (Reichsparteitag der Ehre, September 8–14). The remilitarization 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, steel pin assembly. The reverse is maker marked "Balmberger of Nurnberg". It measures 1 5/8 inches in diameter. A nice piece to add to your collection!
