    Kris - very impressive , almost looks like the eagle used by the Sports Verein - what does the dedication read?

    Horst,

    This is a screamer, and I just listed the description so will cut and paste the dedication for you.

    Ehrenpreis
    des Reichssportfuehrers
    von Tschammer und Osten
    reichsoeffener
    moderner fuenfkampf
    Wuensdorf, 18-21 Juli 1939

    Very nice with that named dedication to a well known personality.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Kris -- Guess I was right in my assumption that it was a Reichs Sportverein Eagle -
    The dedication reads(more or less):
    Honorary Prize dedicated by the Reichs Sport Leader Von Tschammer & Osten, Reichs Open Modern 5 bout, Wuensdorf & the date.

    The eagle does represent the emblem for the DRL(Deutschen Reichbundes fur Leibesubung) of which Von Tschammer & Osten was the Reichssportfuhrer - the DRL was established Jan 1936, headquartered in Berlin "Haus des Deutschen Sports" .
    The "Modern Funfkampf" consisted of: 5000m horse riding with hurdles
    Fencing
    Shooting with a pistol at 25m
    Swimming 300m
    Track 4000m run
