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 gilt washed and enameled, 29mm x 22mm, lapel pin comprised of a oak-leaf wreath encompassing a silhouette of the Kyffhäuser monument. To the top of the pin is the number "50" in gold on a black enamel, bordered in gold, circular base. The solid reverse has its soldered, 50mm, vertical rifled stick pin intact and is well marked with embossed "Ges. Gesch.", indicating, Gesetzlich Geschützt, (Protected by Law). Nice example.
