Reichsbahn 'RBD Posen' arm-eagle


'Deutsche Reichsbahn' (German National Railway) BeVo-woven 'RBD Posen' (Reichsbahndirektion Posen) arm-eagle. One of the new insignia, introduced in September of 1941, was the arm-eagle that was utilized to differentiate between the four German Railway directorates, namely, the WVD 'Wehrmacht Verkehrsdirektion' (Armed-forces Traffic-directorate), the RVD 'Reichsverkersdirektion' (National-traffic-directorate), the HVD 'Hauptverkehrsdirektion' (Central-traffic-directorate), and the RBD 'Reichsbahndirektion' (National-railway-directorate). These four directorates were further broken down into divisions based on important railway yards or areas. This is a piece that was worn by a member of the 'RBD' Posen in Poland, nowadays Poznań. The arm-eagle is in mint and unissued condition, just a bit wrinkled caused by years of storage. The 'RBD Posen' eagle is very hard to find, rare original example!
