WH (Heeres) 'Feldgendarmerie' gorget
The shield on offer here is truly very nicely preserved and simply shows no usage nor wear: it can easily be graded 'mint-/unissued' and retains a fully preserved silver- and/or fluorisent finish. The piece comes naturally complete with its original metal-based chain (ie. 'Kette') as issued and/or found (as can be seen on the pictures). This example is void of any marking or makers-mark (as more often) and retains its nicely preserved (beige-coloured and/or carton-based-) 'backing' as to be expected (this 'backing' shows some minimal age and/or staining - see pictures). These attractive gorgets are nowadays hard to encounter and pieces in this mint-unissued condition can easily be regarded 'very scarce'.
