N028290 NS-HAGO MEMBER'S LAPEL PIN. (Mitgliedaufschlagnadel)

BACKGROUND: NS-Hago, the "National Sozialist Handwerks, Handels und Gewerbe Organisierung" (National Socialist Handicraft, Commerce and Industry Organization), was created in 1933 out of the earlier "Kampfbund des Gewerblichen Mittlestandes" (Fight[ing]-league of-the Industrial Middle-classes). In 1934 it fell under DAF, "Deutsche Arbeitsfront" (German Labor-front), control. In 1935 all NSBO, "Nationalsozialische Betriebszellen Organisierung" (National Socialist Trade-cells Organization), members skilled in crafts and trades became members of NS-Hago. It was later eclipsed by the DAF’s GHG, "Gesamtverband des deutschen Handwerks, Handels und Gewerbes" (Total-association of-the german Handicrafts, Commerce and Industry), which became the RDHdw, "Reichsstand des deutschen Handwerks" (National-class of-the german Handicrafts).

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: An alloy lapel pin in the form of the NS-Hago symbol of a vertical hammer with a black enameled, static swastika to its head, and wings with a span of 22mm extending from its handle. A 50mm long, vertical, rifled stick-pin is soldered to the center of its solid reverse, above which is stamped an RZM, "Reichszeugmeisterei" (National-material-control-office), logo, with "Ges. Gesch.," for "Gesetzlich Geschützt" (By-law Protected), to its left and the number "85" to its right.
