Gold WW2 German SA Sports Badge
Original WWII German SA Sports Badge, Gold grade, in good condition, shows some light wear on surface, excellent detail. Pin and keeper look like they may have been re-solder back on. Marked on the back with maker and issue number. This badge came from a private collection from an ex British Soldier who served in the liberation of Germany. The SA Sports Badge was a decoration of Nazi Germany that was issued between the years 1933 and 1945. It was a political version of the much more generic German Sports Badge which was also issued in great numbers by the Nazis. The SA Sports Badge was issued in three grades (bronze, silver, and gold) as well as a special version known as the "SA Sports Badge for War Wounded". Although originally designed as a physical fitness badge for Nazi stormtroopers, the SA Sports Badge was issued across every German military and paramilitary organization.
