    A beautiful piece!
    Re-issued original pre-war, right?
    please explain, Woolgar.

    I did Read that the B meant a re-issue but have never understood what that meant as ofcourse it is a period item , so would like to know what the re-issue is all about if possible.

    It means the owner either lost the original or wanted a second one.

    Yes it's a nice period example

    there was only one level of proficiency badge for the DJ (and also for the Jungmadel). There were three levels for HJ and two for bdm.

    I always thought there were 3 levels of single sig rune dj badges too - Iron class , bronze class & silver class? , not talking about the marksman badge.
