VERY RARE BLOOD ORDER MEDAL.
The Blood Order medal is one of the highest awards of the NSDAP and was held in high esteem during the period and certainly since by collectors and historians and It has been several years since i have been able to offer a blood order medal as they have become exceptionally difficult to obtain recently, the example I have available is a 2nd pattern in superb near mint condition. The obverse side features a highly detailed eagle clutching a wreath with date 9 Nov and to the viewers right, Munchen 1923-33. The reverse side features the highly detailed Feldherrnhalle monument with large swastika and inscription which translates to, AND YET YOU HAVE CONQUERED, the medal is also stamped at the bottom with issue number 4024 and the silver content number 800. The medal still retains almost all original silver frosted finish just showing very light wear from being actually worn.Complete with original ribbon. It is believed that there were less the 4500 blood orders awarded making it one of the harder awards to find and it is considerably rarer than the knights cross and in my opinion much better value. [Condition: Near Mint]

VERY RARE REICHSKULTURSENAT BADGE.
The honor badge for members of the National senate of culture, it is believed that there were only approximately 250 of this rare badge ever awarded from 1936 / 1945 making it one of the rarest of Third Reich awards. The senate dealt with matters such as art, music, film, theater, radio and press. Dr Goebbls was the leader of the senate and most of of it's members were senior leaders of the party and state such as, Victor Lutze, Hans Johst and Walther Funk.This large badge is basically oval in shape with a gold border forming into 16 points with white enamel center and with gilt lettering, REICHSKULTURSENAT, with large gold eagle and swastika mounted on a column to the center.The reverse of the badge features a high quality pin and hook, the backing plate features two small rivets and bears the issue number 172 and also the makers name, Deschler Munchen and the silver content mark Silber 900. There are two minor variations of this badge featuring slightly different style rivets on the reverse side, one is found on early badges and the other style on latter awards, the one I have is the latter style which is correct for the badge I have which has a fairly high issue number. An extremely rare badge i have only owned one other in the last 30 years, the rarity can not be overstated. The badge is in very nice condition, it does shows light wear as it has been worn and it has also a small shallow flake from the white enamel close to the letter I of the word Reich it has not been restored and it still displays very nicely and considering it's extreme rarity is very acceptable as the chance of finding another example is unlikely and i have priced it very realistically at approximately 50% of the price of a mint example.

VERY RARE 1923 GAU BADGE ORIGINALLY BELONGING TO AN SS OBERFUHRER.
Large black swastika with date 1923 on a circular wreath of oakleaves. Reverse side features two small rivets, pin and hook, silver 800 mark and makers name, R.Wachtler & Lang Mittweida.This award will be found with either a 1923 date or a 1925 date but the 1923 is more desirable as it shows extremely early membership of the NSDAP and many would have also been holders of the Blood order medal. This example originally belonged to SS Oberfuhrer Bachl who from 1942 served with the notorious Kampfgruppe Jecklen in Russia which was heavily involved in Jewish war crimes. Complete with some post war research concerning this officer. [Condition: Exc++]
