This is an intriguing badge, most if not all examples of this badge found on the market do not have a Swastika on them, even the ones shown in the Hüsken's "Katalog der Abzeichen deutscher Organisationen 1871 - 1945" does not have one. The design is exactly the same, just no Swastika at the top. In all of my years collecting I have only seen these two examples, but there must be more out there.

These badges are quite small & the Swastika is tiny, only just over a millimetre or so across.

Does anyone else here have an example with the Swaz in your collection? If so please show us....

Don,,that is 'Hens teeth'...I've never even seen one with the Swas. Even the standard version[?] you rarely find... Must have been extremely hard to cut in that Swas on the die [if thats how they were made]

- Well lets hope ones out there and it gets shown,,,,,,good at least you have those 2 !!

It was the Association of German Broadcasters & was fairly short lived. Founded in 1930 and dissolved in 1936.
