N006178 NSDMB MEMBER'S LAPEL PIN. (Mitglied Aufschlagnadel)

BACKGROUND: The NSDMB, "National Sozialistische Deutscher Marine Bund" (National Socialist German Navy League), was the new name, adopted by its members in 1935, for the earlier "Bund Deutscher Marine Vereine" (League [of the] German Navy Association). In 1938 it was attached to the NS-RKB, "Nationalsozialistische-Reichskriegerbund," who introduced a new pattern national eagle for wear on the breast and visor cap, which was almost identical to the earlier "Soldatenbund" (Soldiers’-league) eagle. The NSDMB came under the control of the "Kriegsmarine" (Navy) in 1943.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Die Stamped, gilt washed alloy construction, left facing national eagle, with out-stretched wings clutching a wreathed, canted, swastika in its talons. The eagle has a black enamel painted Iron Cross superimposed over crossed swords on its breast. The eagle has a roughly 25mm wingspan. The solid reverse has its soldered, 50mm vertical rifled stick pin intact and is well marked "Ges. Gesch.", indicating, Gesetzlich Geschützt, (Protected by Law). Scarce.
