Original German NSDAP (Nazi Party) DRKB MEMBER’S LAPEL PIN. (Mitglied Aufschlagnadel) Certified
Original German NSDAP (Nazi Party) DRKB MEMBER’S LAPEL PIN. (Mitglied Aufschlagnadel) Certified. The DRKB, Deutscher Reichskriegerbund (Kyffhäuserbund), (German National Association of Veterans, Kyffhäuser Association), was formed during WWI, and was based on the DKB, Deutscher Kriegerbund (German Veterans Association), originally formed after the war of 1870-71. The addition of “Kyffhäuser” in the associations name referred to the Kyffhäuser mountain where a large war memorial had been erected. The goal of the association was to preserve the morale and comradeship of former soldiers and to financially assist its members if required. On March 29TH 1938 the DRKB was renamed NS-RKB, Nationalsozialistische-Reichskriegerbund, (National Socialist-State Soldiers League), by the NSDAP and amalgamated with most of the earlier veterans associations into one national organization. Uniform and headgear regulations of the DRKB/NS-RKB were introduced prior to 1933 and were modified again in 1936 and 1938. The obverse of the pin is an approximately 17mm by 14mm shield with an enameled Kyffhäuserbund emblem featuring a black silhouette of the Kyffhäuser monument on a white background field above the national colors. 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).
