The reverse of this badge is flat, and has the Präsidialkanzlei code “65” in raised numerals, indicating manufacture by the firm of Klein & Quenzer in Idar-Oberstein- a fairly prolific maker of these badges.
- German WWII Unissued Western Wall / Siegfried Line Metal with Ribbon And Envelope: The West Wall Medal (Deutsches Schutzwall-Ehrenzeichen) was a decoration of NSDAP Germany. It was instituted on 2 August 1939 and was given to those who designed and built the fortifications on Germany's western borders, known as the Westwall or, in English, the Siegfried Line, between 15 June 1938 to 31 March 1939. On 13 November 1939 eligibility was extended to include servicemen of the Wehrmacht who served on the Westwall for at least ten weeks. In all 622,064 medals were awarded until 31 January 1941, when awards of the medal ceased. This early version was made of solid bronze. The back has the statement FÜR ARBEIT ZUM SCHUTZE DEUTSCHLANDS - "For Work to Protect Germany."
A wonderful totally genuine grouping perfect for the German Medal and Insignia collector.
