Wehrmacht 'Feldgendarmerie' Gorget

Description

Wehrmacht 'Feldgendarmerie' Gorget (Ringkragen). Kidney-shaped magnetic steel breast-shield/gorget having an army style eagle emblem attached to the center, above a banner with the script "Feldgendarmerie", a pebbled button is attached in each upper tip of the shield. The separately attached parts are showing a luminous yellow paint, allowing them to glow in the dark for identification at night. The back of the gorget is still having its original brown carton backing covered with original fieldgrey wool backing. One side of the chain is fixed, the other side is attached to a tab. The second tab was used to slip through a button hole on the uniform to keep the gorget in place. The gorget is nicely maker marked with the "A" logo of the company of 'F.W. Assmann' from Lüdenscheid. The gorget is showing normal traces of usage and is in overall good condition. Hard to find original example!
