SA Sports Badge in Gold (SA-Sportabzeichen). The SA (Sturmabteilung) was originally formed in August 1921 as a protective guard unit for the political leaders of the NSDAP. The SA Sportsbadge in bronze was instituted by SA-Stabschef 'Ernst Röhm' on 28 November 1933, for award to SA and SS personnel who passed the required criteria in physical fitness, military defence and field exercises. This is a 1939/1945 example marked with the third pattern inscription 'Eigentum d. Obersten S.A.Führung', this is a wartime issued version without number. The badge is nicely maker marked by the company of 'W.Redo' from Saarlautern. The details on the magnetic steel badge are really pronounced and stunning, the badge is showing great gold finish. Nice original badge in good condition!
