N011968 NS-RKB MEMBER'S LAPEL PIN. (Mitglied Aufschlagnadel)  

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: The obverse of the pin is an approximately 15mm by 18mm shield. The enamel shield features, against its translucent, pebbled red background, a black enamel Iron Cross with an encircled, mobile swastika to its center. 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.
