Collection: Der Stahlhelm; A Gentleman's Collection

Painstakingly assembled during the 1960's, eMedals is pleased to present at auction, an impressive collection of Stahlhelm membership badges and association pieces. Including several early items which represent the founding months of Franz Seldte's vision, the collection in its entirety details the storied history of the organisation between 1918-1935. Initially conceived as a brotherhood for returning First War participants, the Steel Helmets & Association of Frontline Soldiers would evolve into a politicised movement and subsequently make their mark on the landscape of interwar Germany.
