Original German SA Flag Bearer’s Gorget Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History. The SA flag bearer’s Kornet gorget was the first official gorget to be introduced by the NSDAP, at the Nürnberg Reichsparteitag in early August 1929. The NSKK and SS flag bearers used the SA Kornet gorget until the introduction of their respective gorgets; the NSKK in September 1935, and the SS in September 1938. Multi-piece, stamped alloy construction, heart shaped gorget with a heavy nickel/silver plating. Outside edge has a raised rolled back border lip. Upper corners of obverse each have a small, ornate, flower patterned, nickel/silver plated brass button. Gorget has a large natural brass/tombak eight point sunburst pattern plate affixed to the center with a nickel/silver plated circular plate superimposed to center. Central circular plate is fashioned after the early SA belt buckle face plate and features a small stylized national eagle clutching a wreath encompassing a sunwheel style swastika, on a smooth field. This in turn is encompassed by a twisted “rope” border followed by a ridged outer border with embossed oak-leaf half-wreath and another outer twisted “rope” border. Reverse of gorget with two bent over chain hanging tabs to upper corners and an retaining tab to middle for attaching the gorget through a uniform button hole. With Green wool felt back.
