Product Description: This Bronze Customs Eagle Stickpin is an attractive example of a scarce pin. It depicts a German national eagle and swastika emblem, surrounded by a wreath of oak leaves. The obverse shows no evident wear, and all of the high-quality original bronze finish is intact, with nice golden tones. The reverse of this emblem is flat and smooth, and is marked with an LDO maker code. The attachment pin is soldered directly to the reverse of the emblem, with no plate. The original bronze finish is completely undisturbed, and there is no sign of any damage or repairs. The long attachment pin is completely straight, and has the typical knurling to the midsection, the help hold this pin in place when worn on a lapel. This Bronze Customs Eagle Stickpin still looks as it did when it was made, and is in outstanding, near mint condition.
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.
