Hello

 

I received for my collection a prototype badge at creating the General Staff badge. It has a blue enameled star and white and red leafes and a special fastener.

Size: 2 inches

The War Department General Staff identification ( device ) was approved in 1933.

So this prototype is over 80 years old. I have no idea how many were made.

I only know one other example exist.

If someone has one please post a picture.

 

If you have any official information please let me know.

Michael
