Title NSDAP leader's visor cap cockade (2nd model)
Nationality German
Period 1943-45
Price £30.00

This replaced the simple black/white/red type, essentially just adding the oak leaf wreath to the round cockade. This was worn by all party leaders fom Ortsleiter right up to the top, Reichsleiter. This zinc with gilt wash example might well be a late war piece on account of the zinc base and painted red centre.

This has suffered the common fate of most zinc based badges, inasmuch as the gilding has been absorbed by the base metal over the years, rather like the finish on zinc U-boat badges. One prong has been lost at the back.

It is here! Very nice piece! That is a wonderful birthday present for my new life.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
