Badge 'DRL Sportabzeichen' Silver

Here a very nice DRL 'sports badge' in silver. The badge is in good condition, there is no damage except for minor signs of wear. The closure is still functioning and can therefore still be opened and closed. The badge is not maker marked, this is almost more difficult to find than a marked version these days. All in all a very nice badge, this DRL in silver. Very nice to upgrade a uniform or for in the display case. Here some background information. Since May 10, 1933, the sport organized by associations in Germany was already "gleichgeschaltet" and brought under the authority of the German state controlled by the Nazis. A swastika was now applied to the badge. As so often in the Third Reich, the sport was also militarized. The requirements for obtaining the badge were expanded to include shooting with a pistol and rifle required for the fourth degree. (This item is from my private collection!)
