HISTORY:
Here is the bronze class insignia that was actually an award for superior marksmanship in those official government-sponsored shooting contests for veterans. “Once a soldier, always a soldier” (at least in the “Vaterland”). This award came in bronze, silver, and gold and this one is the bronze class. It is a beautifully constructed stickpin with the image of the Kyffhäuser monument featured in the center with a target that shows up in the design. At the base is the shield with Germany’s national colors and above the Denkmal or monument is the green oak leaves of victory. Around the outside dimension is a bronze wreath. The badge is unmarked on its back.
