A superb condition Gau Ost Hannover badge.
Often when found mistaken for a ‘Tinnie’ this badge is one of three grades of Gau badge awarded ‘within the district’. Grades being bronze, silver and gilt, the bronze and silver are in the pressed style with the gold being both pressed and of the ‘solid’ type.
Badge is in superb damage free condition, with all original finish remaining. reverse with correct fitting pin. No maker details as is correct.
As with most Gau badges, something of a rarity.
