    I have researched this German Riders Award Badge.
    I know a style of it was created in 1930 and later an R was added to the Award...
    This one has an M where the R is on all the others I see listed in articles and for sale.
    Can you tell me if this is an earlier version? What does the M stand for?
    I would appreciate any other historical and value information on this very interested award.

    Thank you

    Diane

    PS... some tell me this may be a V and not an M ...

    this arrow points to the area that I am referencing as M or V...
    Is it a letter at all? is it just part of the design and made to look like a stylized ribbon?
    Thanks for any help...

    That's just a stylized ribbon, not a letter...The needle may be a replacement as well.

    Thank you for your reply... was this style made at the same time as the styles with the R ?
    earlier or later?

    It's a ribbon, not a letter.

    As Glenn said, this version of the badge (without the "R") is the post-war version.

    It is, however actually not a "1957" version, as this badge did not fall under the regulations of the 1957 law.

    The circular "R"-device was the symbol of the Reichsverband zur Zucht und Prüfung deutschen Warmbluts [National Association for the Breeding and Testing of German Warm-Blooded Horses] and also featured on the other badges awarded by this organization.

    Note that the reverse of this badge bears the abbreviated name of that body's succesor-of-sorts, the Zentral-Kommission für die Leistungsprüfungen von Warmblut- und Kaltblutpferden [Central Committee for the Performance Tests of Warm-blooded and Cold-blooded Horses], which was founded in the early post-war years. (Around 1949, I think.) Opposite that is the name of the badge's manufacturer, Steinhauer & Lück of Lüdenscheid.
