    Yes but. 10,15,20,25,30,35,40,50,80 etc? Sounds a bit extreme. No other award was the broken down. I'll get the full lowdown tomorrow,along with some better pics. Stewy
    I cannot comment on these badges as such, but actually the idea of so many different grades of blood donor's badges is not so unusual.

    The present-day German Red Cross still awards blood donor badges in many different grades:
    The current GRC standard system has award classes for 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175, 200, 250, 275 and 300 blood donations; the Red Cross organizations of some German states employ a different sequence, though.
    (For example, the Bavarian Red Cross currently has the grades for 3, 10, 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150 and 175 donations.)

    As an example, here are the current blood donor badges as awarded in the state of Northrhine-Westphalia:

    Orden und Ehrenzeichen des Deutschen Roten Kreuzes (at the bottom of the page)

    In Germany, the metric system was and is used; in this case liters or milliliters.
    In present-day blood donations, 500 milliliters (1/2 l) of blood are taken per donation, with men being allowed to give blood up to 6 times per year and women up to 4 times. (Don't know the Third-Reich era rules and regulations, though.)
