    Default Award identification

    found this photo online and I'm struggling to identify the award on the breast pocket.
    It looks like a propeller prop with wreath and a crown on top.
    I've searched the Internet and all my reference books without any joy hence posting the image on this forum for help.
    Regards.

    It's an unofficial, Weimar-era badge awarded by the RKL, the Ring der Nationalen Kraftfahrt- u Luftfahrt-Bewegung [= Association of the National Motoring- and Aviation-Movement].

    The RKL's eagle badges came in the following classes:

    • Dienstadler [Service Eagle] in Black and Bronze grades [= eagle]
    • Ehrennadel [Honor Pin] in Bronze, Silver and Gold grades [= eagle in a diamond-shaped border]
    • Sportadler [Sports Eagle] in Silver and Gold Grades [= eagle placed on wider wings]
    • Sportkranz [Sports Wreath] in Silver and Gold Grades [= eagle placed on wider wings with a wreath]

    The one worn in this photograph is the Sportkranz [= Sports Wreath].

    The LSSAH officer wearing it is Hitler's driver Erich Kempka.

    (Other prominent Nazi leaders who can be seen wearing this award in pre- and early Third Reich era photographs include Schreck, Hühnlein and Göring.)
