N058578 FIRST PATTERN "N.S. FRAUENSCHAFT" (Small) MEMBERSHIP BADGE.(Mitgliedabzeichen)
BACKGROUND: The "Nat. Soz. Frauenschaft" (National Socialist Womenís-organization) was formed by absorbing the earlier "Deutsches Frauenwerk" (German Womenís-welfare-organization), and the "Deutscher Frauenorden" (German Womenís-order), into a single national organization. The first pattern Frauenschaft memberís 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 memberís badge, which followed the design of the earlier "Deutsches Frauenwerk" badge.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A slightly convex, alloy and enamel badge in the form of an inverted triangle, 16mm wide along its top edge and 20mm tall. "N.S. 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. A horizontal pin-back device is crimped to a circular plate brazed to the reverse. Unmarked. Scarce to see in this size.
