    It is easier to find chicken lips than it is American German bund stuff. As you might realize most of it was gotten rid of when the war with Germany started for the USA.
    Most are not aware that the majority if the higher ranking individuals in the bund were rounded up and interned until after WWII.

    Thank you for showing us this rare badge; more often than not the only German American Bund items I see for sale are stickpins.

    Have you got anymore similar items, I would love to see them!

    Thank you, Glen.

    PS Welcome to the forum!
    There was a large American Bund banner recently for sale, I will try and find the auction house images again.

    GERMAN-AMERICAN BUND SILVER RING
    A fine and unusual relic of the German-American Bund, a silver man`s ring produced by Franz Schnell that bears a black enameled top with the "AV" symbol and the American federal eagle on both sides. It measures about 1" tall and is hallmarked on the band .835 for silver content. The German-American Bund organization was formed out of the ”Friends of the New Germany”. This organization was made up of German Americans bearing strong racial and nationalistic feelings stirred-up when Hitler was elected chancellor. The members wore uniforms, sang the Horst Wessel Lied, and flew the swastika flag, and as a result soon fell out of favor within the U.S. Its leaders, largely German nationals, were recalled to Germany and in 1936 the German-American Bund, or Amerikadeutscher Volksbund (AV) was organized.

    He looks like Henry Gibson from the 70s TV Program 'Laugh In'.
