    Default Types of SA sport badges

    Hey gang...Not sure if this was posted before or not but I thought I would put this on here and it might be worth considering pinning this for future reference.....

    I thought I would show how to differentiate SA sport badges....not by colour but by type - and time of issue.

    There are three types of SA badges that were issued. Generally - collectors call them type 1, type 2 and type 3 (type 1 being the earliest issue).

    I'm dont' think the look of the badges changed between periods of issue - but the writting on the back is what differentiates each period.

    Here's the info:

    Type 1 has the inscription "Eigentum des Chefs des Ausdildungswesens" (meaning Property of the Head of Physical Conditioning) and dates from 1934-35. These are the earliest SA sports badges.

    Type 2 has the inscription "Eigentum der SA-Sportabzeichen-Hauptstelle" (meaning Property of the SA Sport Badge Head Department) and dates from 1935-1939.

    Type 3 is the final badge issue. It has the inscription "Eigentum der Obersten SA-Fuhrung" (Meaning: Property of the SA Supreme Command) and dates from 1939 - 1945.

    Hope you guys find this information useful. Have a look at the back of your SA sports badge...now you can find out when your badge was issued!

    Cheers!

    Rob

    ...and incidentally, you'll notice that all three grades (gold, silver, bronze) are shown.

    Honestly, these are my most favorite badges. Not extremely high in value but extremely beautiful IMO.

    I picked my first Bronze one up 4 months ago and hoping i will pick up the silver in a couple of weeks.

    Thanks for showing Rob.

    rgds, Ty
