    Good original gorget, great manufacturer: Imme & Sohn from Berlin.

    Only one minor problem is the "coating" for the spade and wheat.
    It should have a sort silvered and polished symbol.

    Part from the official 1939 description, specifically the RAD-symbol:

    Maybe someone cleaned the symbol to much or severe?

    That is a major problem. The ones I looked at for comparison were all silver, was hopeing this was a variant.

    Thank you for the information, very much appreciated.
