Garmisch USA Ski School Enamel Pin- Deschler Munchen 90
Very cool enamel pin for the Germsich USA Ski School Test. I am not sure what the "Test" means but this is a very well made badge. Most I see have are unmarked and have a cogwheel type design that I think is supposed to be a snowflake. This example is German made by the firm Deschler Munchen 90. Deschler was quality oriented enough that their Third Reich era hallmark was "1". This pin is typical of quality German enamel in that the border between different color enamel ad metal areas can barely be felt with a finger. The Garmisch area has long been considered a winter sports paradise and hosted the German Winter Olympics before the war. There are not many places on the planet that are prettier. Very nice pin.
