Product Description: This Police Eagle in Silver Stickpin is a choice example. It depicts the distinctive wreathed eagle and swastika organizational emblem used by the German Polizei. It shows no wear, and all of the original detail is intact. The pin has been coated with a fairly thick, high-quality silver finish, which is completely intact, with attractive original luster. The reverse of the emblem is flat and smooth, with no maker marking. The attachment pin is nice and straight, and is neatly soldered directly to the emblem, with no repairs. The pin has the typical knurling in the center, to help fix the pin in place when worn on a lapel. This Police Eagle in Silver Stickpin is virtually perfect. The condition rates as near mint plus.
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.
