(R439) A Very Nice example of a used 1st Pattern 1st Class Social Welfare Cross. The cross has been used and worn as can be seen from the scan and has had, in my opinion, the eyering repaired with some enamel replaced to the top. Mounted with its original loop, the cross comes with its original ribbon and neck ties. Very scarce award to find nowadays. Only the 3rd we have had in around 30 years. Priced for condition GBP £1250.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS581) A nice used and worn Social Welfare Cross Pin back Cross. The cross has a big chip out of the enamel to the top right arm of the eagle where someone has recently dropped it. The reverse of this highly convexed cross is plain and gilded. There are no maker's marks and it has a nice quality pin, hinge and hook fitting. I believe the cross is probably a Godet example GBP £650.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS255) A Social Welfare Medal being a zinc example in very good condition but with minor staining. The award has had the eye loop pulled and so is slightly out of shape. The award was recently removed from a salesman's board.

GBP £65.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC251) A Nice example of an Early Social Welfare Medal. The medal has been dropped sadly, as there is damage to the rim, but nothing too serious, not really noticable except in the price! Nice to find a good quality example of good quality metal. GBP £65.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC38) A Social Welfare Medal being the Earlier heavier quality metal type in good condition. The award could do with a mild clean as it appears at some time also to have been put into a bench vice and squeezed?? Only really noticeable from the side and back. Priced for this. This was part of a group picked up by someone who was obviously in charge of de-nazification or had light fingers!

Using history as a backdrop, author Craig Gottlieb offers a study of Gau Ehrenzeichen, or the Nazis' District Honour Badges. Although useful both as the first-ever collector's manual devoted exclusively to the subject, this study can also help historians understand the formative years of the Nazi party between 1923 and 1939. Drawing on his knowledge not only of the artifacts themselves, but on a keen understanding of the period, Gottlieb offers a unique view into the pre-war history of Nazi Germany. Using previously unpublished photos, and drawing on private archives of original specimens of every badge and corresponding award document, Gottlieb answers two questions: what is a Gau Ehrenzeichen, and why were they relevant in understanding Hitler's rise to power?
