Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (German Red Cross) Samaritan Service Brooch


Categories: ,


The DRK (Deutsches Rotes Kreuz )”German Red Cross” was a voluntary civil assistance organization that was originally instituted in 1864. All female DRK personnel were issued an active service brooch to be worn as a duty badge at the nape of the neck of the service uniform. The active service brooches came in both circular and oval versions and assorted minor variations depending on the rank/position level of the recipient.

This example is stellar with no damage to the enamel and bright vibrant colors, the hardware is undamage as well, overall a textbook piece that is becoming harder and harder to find these days.
