    Hi Gary,

    The medallion you have is for the 'Reichsbund Deutsche Jagerschaft'. The society was taken over by the Nazi Party in 1934 until 1945 when it reverted back to the 'Deutsche Jagerschaft' (German Hunting Society) as it had been pre 3rd Reich.

    During the Reich period, the RDJ was led by the 'Reichsjagermeister' ( Reich Hunting Master); one Hermann Goering. Below is the RDJ symbol you have on the award, and the pre/post Reich symbol featuring the cross of St.Hubertus.

    Regards, Ned.
