The sigrune first became associated with the DJ on November 9TH 1929, the sixth anniversary of the failed Beer Hall Putsch, when the Gauleiter of Vienna presented them with their first official flag, consisting of a black field with a central silver sigrune. The sigrune was adopted as the official emblem of the DJ. A nickel-silver plated metal lapel pin in the form of a vertical diamond, 32mm tall, within whose double borders are a cut-out “Sig” rune. A vertical pin and catch assembly is soldered to its unmarked reverse. Nice example issued with expected storage wear. Gettysburg Museum Certified (COA) provided.
