    Here shown one of the SS gorgets I showed in my in 2012 released book
    about gorgets (Ringkragen und Brustschilder im Dritten Reich).
    Note the mint condition and eagle's details. This gorget is from the well-known
    and most excellent collection from my friend: David Delich.

    The SS runes are from another SS gorget, from the collection of Michael Shaner
    from the USA!

    I have not ever heard from such gorget, made by Overhoff. All found SS-gorgets
    were marked M 1/128, being the concern of Eugen Schmidhäussler from Pforzheim.
    Thank you. Wonderful images.
    damit, basta.

    It's an SA gorget, which was also used by the SS prior to the introduction of the special SS model in (if memory serves) 1938.

    As far as I have researched the SS used not the messing or bronze starburst, but a
    silvered one. This type is very scarce. Of course it is possible, as rules were not so
    strict in the earlierst days, the one with the bronze starburst also was used by the
    SS and also while the SS was first assigned to the SA.
    The second version gorget was first seen during the annual Party Day at Nürnberg in
    1938 (September) when 14 new standards were granted.

    Hello Krisse
    There are more than a few "cringe-worthy" items on that site. Tread with extreme caution.

    The gorget-book, published in 2012, is just over 700 pages and loaded with such detailed photographs
    from many sorts of gorgets. For most it is a pity, as the book hast German text. Plans for an English
    version are "put on ice"!
