Dietrich Eckart Badge
Having an interest in the early party and Eckart, I was able to pick up this great Dietrich Eckart badge that was issued for the dedication of his Mermorial in 1933 on the 10th anniversary of his death. The badge is very heavy and is a quality striking. There are two known makers, Deschler and Lauer.

An interesting badge I have never encountered before. Thanks for posting it.
LIFE'S LOSERS NEVER LEARN FROM THE ERROR OF THEIR WAYS.
Thanks Bob, it took me years to find one. Also, interesting that they're not RZM marked.

You're right, it's not often seen and the only badge to celebrate Hitlers mentor that I know of.
Congratulations on this splendid acquisition and I know that it will hold a special place in your niche "Kampfzeit" collection.
It is difficult to describe what such high, special and unique regard, Adolf Hitler held for this remarkable fellow.
I strongly recommend any forum member to spend a little time with say casual on line research of Dietrich Eckart. A remarkable read befitting a quite remarkable fellow!
