    Morning all, just thought I would share with you this rare as the proverbial "rocking horse s9.;" award that I have winging it's way over to me. It is the German horse drivers badge in bronze and I can't say that I have seen one of these on offer for quite some time. Leon.

    It makes a nice change to see an original one Leon.
    Good looking badge with the right amount of patina.

    Cheers

    Thanks fella's for your positive words, i personally feel these are underated, especially as the SA and SS at the time held them in high regard! I read many years ago that there were around 100,000 Reiter awards of all classes awarded during the Reich period, just how many of them were these Fahrerabzeichen though I would like to know, as they seem to be out numbered significantly by the standard Reiter award.

    Very nice.

    I only have the post-war version (without the Reichsverband's "R" logo) in bronze and silver, made by Steinhauer & Lück (as far as I know the sole post-war manufacturer).

    Hope it is alright if I add them here for comparison:

    While searching for something completely different in my old backissues of the Internationales Militaria-Magazin, I stumbled upon an article on the Fahrerabzeichen in the 2008 Sept./Oct. issue.

    That article lists the following award numbers up until 1945:

    • 17,376 Bronze
    • 1,940 Silver
    • 63 Gold

    That's great information! Thanks for posting it, it really is most appreciated. Just goes to show how few of these there are compared to the Reiter awards, just what I was looking for. Leon.
