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.

testimonials

The police cutlass exceeded my expectations, it arrived earlier than expected. Thank you very much from a very satisfied customer who will no doubt return.

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
