Product Description: This Police Eagle w/Swords in Gold Stickpin is an exceptionally well-preserved original piece, with outstanding eye appeal. The obverse of this attractive pin features the distinctive wreathed eagle and swastika organizational emblem of the German Polizei, superimposed on a pair of crossed swords. These are separate pieces, that have been neatly soldered together. There is no wear, and all of the original detail is intact. The gold finish on this pin is absolutely beautiful, and virtually all there, with beautiful shine and pleasant, light golden shades. The reverse of this Police Eagle w/Swords in Gold Stickpin is unmarked, and features an attachment pin that has been soldered to the pin with a plate. The gold finish is undisturbed, and there is no damage and no sign of any repairs. The attachment pin has perfect finish and an extremely slight bend. This interesting Polizei pin remains in near mint condition, and 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.
