    Default Named DRL Badge in Gold(?)

    Greetings everyone,

    I just wanted to share one of my recent findings from a local shop. It is a DRL badge in gold, I believe. I can not tell for sure, but it looks like a gold wash to me. This one was made by Ernst L. Muller, which I understand is a fairly scarce maker of these. Upon closer inspection of the badge, I noticed that it was inscribed with the recipients name and address! It looks like "Wilh. Snade" and "Wolfenbuttel Doktorkamp 9". Does anyone have any leads on how I can find out who this guy was? I have tried searching the name online and came up empty handed. Any help would be appreciated! Also, what would be an approximate value of this piece? I don't plan on selling it, but it's always good to know what something is worth. Thanks!

    Thanks guys! Any ideas on how to find out some info about the soldier? I can't tell if his last name is "SNADE" or "SNOLDE".

    Could it be Shade?...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    My best guess is 'SNADE'. Finding out anything about him is an impossible task unless he was the recipient of a high end award, was a personality of the era or did something historically important.
    Even then, saying this badge belonged to a particular individual is a speculative task without provenance.
