Original WWII German 1935 NSDAP NATIONAL SEA TRAVEL DAY, COMMEMORATIVE BADGE. (Erinnerungsabzeichen) Broght Home By A U.S. Veteran. An injection molded aluminum badge roughly in the form of a horizontal oval, 42mm across. To its top is a soaring eagle clutching a wreathed, mobile swastika in its talons. To either side of the swastika is scrolled “Seefahrt” (Seafaring) and “Ist Not” (Is Necessary). The base of an anchor may be seen to the base of the surround, with “Tag Der Deutschen” (Day Of German) and “Seefahrt 184.108.40.2065” (Seafaring 220.127.116.115) scrolled to either side. The central image on the badge is that of a three-quarter profiled, three-mast sailing vessel, under sail on rough seas. To the reverse is crimped a horizontal pin-back device, beneath which is embossed the manufacturer’s mark. This un-touched, un-cleaned, badge was brought home by a U.S. Soldier. Nice example showing the expected minor age and wear overall good condition. One of the classic desirable NSDAP collector’s items from the third Reich in good condition.
