    I always liked the contrast on these. I'd love one, and it's SA equivalent as well.

    Actually unless I'm really mistaken this is a Military Sports badge that was and is awarded in Bronze, Silver or Gold. When I was serving in the US Army in Germany in the late 70s I took part in the sporting events and was awarded this particular badge(minus the swastica of course) in bronze; if I recall correctly this is one of the oldest awards that was and is currently awarded by the German Army. I've seen this badge offered for sale without the swastica as a "pre-war" badge so one needs to be careful-you can google DRL for more info on this award.

    There is also an excellent and informative thread here on the forum about these badges. You can see it here.

    A sports badge from the 1970's would likely have been
    a 'DSB' badge of the same form.........
