Some toning and lose of silvering, but enamel is perfect and over an excellent example.
Der Stahlhelm, Bund der Frontsoldaten (German, ‘The Steel Helmet, League of Front-Line Soldiers’), commonly known as Der Stahlhelm (‘The Steel Helmet’), was a German First World War veteran’s organisation existing from 1918 to 1935. It was part of the “Black Reichswehr” and in the late days of the Weimar Republic operated as the paramilitary wing of the monarchist German National People’s Party (DNVP), placed at party gatherings in the position of armed security guards (Saalschutz).It was taken over by the Nazi Party in 1933 and was dissolved in 1935. So, the organization in the form associated with this badge was in existence for only 17 months.
