GERMAN FIELD POLICE GORGET.
A good example of the Field Police (Feldgendarmerie) gorget. All of the luminous paint to the two outer buttons and the central eagle is intact. All of the luminous paint to the lower scroll which reads 'Feldgendarmerie' is missing with the exception of the three of the four letter 'e's and with fractions left in the last letter 'r' and the first letter 'g'. Excellent original finish to the back plate, it is complete with its steel chain. It is more desirable example with the makers mark 'M' within a lozenge to the uniform retaining hook and it is complete with its light grey backing cloth. Some rust flooding through the cloth from the steel retaining pins of the Gendarmerie front scroll.
