Hey guys.
A US vet just gave me a nice silver 1927 badge for the WW1 vet organization "Der Stahlhelm". It is inscribed on the back with the date that the vet joined this organization 1 12 27...I assume that is December 1st as don't you Europeans do it the opposite of us Amis? Also. The top is inscribed with a roman numeral IV. Mi. 539....I think that has to do with the district and town he was from and possibly the membership number for that year? Anyone know for sure?
Paul

Here it is. Looks better in person as the sun is reflecing off of the enamel. Sometimes people like to clean these since they are silver but I prefer to leave it in untouched condition. Any info on the region where this WW1 vet was from or anything else you may know about the nomenclature would be appreciated.
Paul

I would love to see it Ian. Artifacts are so much more interesting when you have some historical context to go with them. Look forward to seeing the one from Honey's family.
