Original German SECOND PATTERN “DEUTSCHES FRAUNENSCHAFT” KREIS LEVEL MEMBERSHIP BADGE. (Mitgliedabzeichen) Certified. The “Nat. Soz. Frauenschaft” (National Socialist Women’s-organization) was formed by absorbing the earlier “Deutsches Frauenwerk” (German Women’s-welfare-organization), and the “Deutscher Frauenorden” (German Women’s-order), into a single national organization. The first pattern Frauenschaft member’s badge followed the design of the earlier “Deutscher Frauenorden” badge as introduced in the mid-1920s, with minor variations.
