H026575 DRIVER'S PROFICIENCY BADGE IN GOLD. (Kraftfahr-Bewährungsabzeichen, Gold)

BACKGROUND: On October 23RD 1942 a series of three Driver's Proficiency Badges in the grades of bronze, silver and gold were introduced with qualifications for award of the badges being retroactive to December 1ST 1940. The criteria for award of one of the badges varied with exceptional driving ability and vehicle maintenance being the main considerations. The badges were awarded to both Wehrmacht and civilian personnel who fulfilled the required criteria. When awarded the badge was worn on the lower left sleeve of the field blouse and service tunic. This example, in gold, is the highest of the three grades.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Stamped magnetic sheet metal badge with a gilt wash. The badge is in the form of an embossed, circular laurel leaf wreath encompassing an embossed steering wheel on a pebbled background field. The badge retains about 90% of its gilt finish. The badge is complete with a circular, magnetic sheet metal backing plate and both of the bent over attachment prongs are intact.
