SA Sports Badge in Silver (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 silver 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'. 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. Nice original badge in good used condition!
