DESCRIPTION

A scarce example of the Sudeten German badge commemorating the 1938 return of the Sudetenland to Germany.  The actual reason for which these badges were awarded or purchased is not yet known. The badge features an enameled center with decorative work in the red field rather than any wording. The wreath around the badge reads 'Sudetenland-1938' with laurel and oak leaves in between. The reverse is marked 'Ges. Gesch' and retains its original pin and catch. This badge was apparently exposed to moisture as there are a couple of tiny holes where the metal wreath has rusted through and darkening in that area and the date area as can be seen in the photos. Some of these badges have been unearthed in the Sudeten area, which could possibly be the case with this example. Not an easy badge to find in any condition.
