N037580 FIRST PATTERN "NAT SOZ FRAUENSCHAFT" (Large) MEMBERSHIP BADGE AND IDENTITY CARD. (Mitgliedabzeichen)

BACKGROUND: The "Nat. Soz. Frauenschaft" (National Socialist Women's-organization) was formed by absorbing the earlier "Deutsches Frauenwerk" (German Women's-welfare-organization), and the "Deutscher Frauenorden" (German Women's-order), into a single national organization. The first pattern Frauenschaft member's badge followed the design of the earlier "Deutscher Frauenorden" badge, as introduced in the mid-1920s, with minor variations. In 1938 the first pattern badge was replaced with a modified second pattern member's badge, which followed the design of the earlier "Deutsches Frauenwerk" badge.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: The alloy badge takes the form of a 45mm tall inverted triangle with a 39mm wide top edge. "Nat. Soz. Frauenschaft" is to the white band to the top of the obverse, underneath of which is a white cross against a black background. To the center of the cross is a red, static swastika, and "G" is to its left arm, "H" to its right, and "L" to its base. These Gothic letters signify the Frauenschaft motto, "Glaube, Hoffnung, Liebe" (Faith, Hope, Love). All of the letters, and the edges of the swastika, cross, and the badge itself, are in the same gilt color as its alloy base. Marked, "Ges. Gesch". Complete with pin-back device. Also included is a 14cm x 9cm, canvas construction N.S. Frauenschaft identity card.
