Original RARE German NSDAP (Nazi Party) NSDMB MEMBER’S BREAST EAGLE. (Hoheitsabzeichen) Certified. The NSDMB, “National Sozialistische Deutscher Marine Bund” (National Socialist German Navy League), was the new name, adopted by its members in 1935, for the earlier “Bund Deutscher Marine Vereine” (League [of the] German Navy Association). In 1938 it was attached to the NS-RKB, “Nationalsozialistische-Reichskriegerbund,” who introduced a new pattern national eagle for wear on the breast and visor cap, which was almost identical to the earlier “Soldatenbund” (Soldiers’-league) eagle. The NSDMB came under the control of the “Kriegsmarine” (Navy) in 1943. A stamped, gilt-washed alloy eagle, whose spread wings have a span of 95mm, with a wreathed, mobile swastika in its talons, and a black enamel-painted Iron Cross to its breast, behind which is an anchor and crossed swords. A horizontal pin-back device, with a hinge and catch, is to its hollow-backed reverse. “Ges.” is embossed to the reverse of one of the eagle’s wings, and “Gesch.,” to the other, for “Gesetzlich Geschützt” (By-law Protected).. Scarce. Excellent example. Some wear and expected issues. 100% Guaranteed to be authentic Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History.
