This handsome gorget is produced in a highly polished steel which remains shiny with some very faint scratches and a few small dings. It is shield shaped and features a separately applied, metal RAD motto (upright spade with swastika and wheat sprigs on either side) in the center. Above the motto is engraved the script “Arbeit adelt” or “work makes you stronger”. The dished reverse is missing the felt backing. There is an upright tab which was used to attach to the uniform for stabilization while in use. This tab is engraved with the makers name, reading “JMME & Sohn”. There are two rings on the back for the fixed chain, which is full length, also being polished steel. A super item in near excellent condition overall!
