Product Description: This Bronze Customs Eagle Stickpin is a pristine example. The front of this attractive pin features a German national eagle and swastika emblem on a pebbled field, surrounded by a wreath. All of the nice original factory applied bronze finish is intact, with darker tones in the recesses that contrast with golden highlights. The reverse of the emblem is flat and smooth, and is unmarked, with a slight age patina. An attachment pin is soldered directly to the reverse of the emblem, with no attachment plate. The bronze finish is undisturbed, leaving no doubt that the pin is originally applied. The pin tapers to a point, and is nice and straight, with a typical knurled section in the middle. This Bronze Customs Eagle Stickpin is in outstanding, near mint condition. It would likely be impossible to upgrade.
Historical Description: In Germany, during and between the World Wars, stickpins were generally made for wear on civilian clothing, by either men or women. Whereas most civil and military awards intended for uniform wear were in the form of medals or pin-on badges, the simple stickpins were mostly for adorning lapels of suits. A huge variety of these stickpins were produced. There were pins that anyone could buy, that were patriotic or showed support for some specific cause. There were also various membership pins for military, paramilitary, civil and political organizations. Military and civil awards were also produced in stickpin versions. These took the form of miniature versions of the awards, and could either show one individual award, or all of the awards that one individual had received. In many cases, German stickpins were made with the same standard of quality as the full-size medals and badges.
