N000861 DRKB MEMBER'S BRONZE SHOOTING AWARD STICK PIN. (DRKB Schiessauszeichnung)

BACKGROUND: The DRKB, Deutscher Reichskriegerbund (Kyffhäuserbund), (German National Association of Veterans, Kyffhäuser Association), was formed during WWI, and was based on the DKB, Deutscher Kriegerbund (German Veterans Association), originally formed after the war of 1870-71. The addition of "Kyffhäuser" in the associations name referred to the Kyffhäuser mountain where a large war memorial had been erected. The goal of the association was to preserve the morale and comradeship of former soldiers and to financially assist its members if required.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Post-1935 pattern, die struck, bronze washed, alloy, DRKB veterans shooting award lapel pin with black enamel work. The pin features a roughly, 23mm diameter, circular, oak-leaf wreath encompassing a cut-out, likeness of the Kyffhäuser monument with a superimposed canted, black enameled swastika positioned above crossed rifles. The top tip of the Kyffhäuser monument and the butts of the rifles extend beyond the edge of the oak-leaf wreath. Both the bronze and black enamel finishes are fully intact. The semi-scooped reverse has a vertical, soldered, rifle stick pin intact. Unmarked. Nice example.
