GERMAN THIRD REICH DRL BADGE IN GOLD, CASED.
Probably the finest DRL badge we have ever had, this cased gold example of which only 1,935 were awarded in 1938, compared to 86,000 bronze and 8,000 silver. The gilt is absolutely magnificent with high quality silvered finish to the DRL intertwined logo. Complete with its wide pin to the reverse side with original hook and hinge. This piece has obviously been hand jeweller finished and is situated in a presentation case, which may have well been privately obtained by the wearer or possibly issued in this case. The outline to the award on the lower velvet style base indicates it has been situated in this case for many years.
