50 Year Veterans Gorget - DRKB or NS-RKB WWII German
Super nice 50 year veterans standard bearer gorget. Nice, original condition with full length chain. I don't clean or fix anything so a quick polish on the front might make this look even nicer but it is a screamer as it is. Unit or group engraving looks to be "Woltmersh. Wehr. u. Kr. - Kameradschaft e.V" which looks a lot better on the gorget then in computer type. I see no damage to the enamel past normal age toning. A scrap of fabric has been added to the reverse; Probably a period addition to protect the wearer's uniform from the bolt. 50 year gorgets are very hard to find. DRKB started as a veteran group from the Franco-Prussian war and was changed to NS-RKB under the Third Reich. Very nice item with a lot of eye appeal.
