N011173 CASED DRKB TWENTY-FIVE YEAR MEMBER'S PIN WITH DOCUMENT. (Mitgliednadel)

BACKGROUND: The DRKB, "Deutscher Reichskriegerbund" (German National-veterans’-league), was formed during WWI, and was based on the DKB, "Deutscher Kriegerbund," originally formed after the Franco-Prussian war in the 1870s. By 1936 it had incorporated most of the varied veterans’ associations into it, and was itself re-named the NS-RKB, "Nationalsozialistische-Reichskriegerbund," in 1938.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A silver washed and enameled, 32mm x 22mm, lapel pin comprised of a silver washed oak-leaf wreath encompassing a silhouette of the Kyffhäuser monument. To the top of the pin is the number "25" in silver on a black enamel, bordered in silver, circular base. The reverse is marked with "Ges. Gesch". Its pin is intact. All of the components are in very good condition. Nice example. Comes in a small cardstock case, as well as a 21cm x 16cm, paper certificate that names the recipient as Johann Eckert, Gennweiler and is dated for April 23, 1937. The document shows usage and wear with wrinkling, as well as fold lines due to storage.
