Heer Weapons Maintenance Trade Badge
Trade and Specialist badges were introduced at varying times through-out the Third Reich to distinguish EM/NCO personnel who had achieved proficiency at a particular trade, specialty or function. The identifying insignia was most commonly worn on the lower right sleeve of the service or field tunic of qualified personnel.
Pre-1940 pattern insignia made of dark green wool base with embroidered crossed rifles in golden yellow to the center. Unissued exampel in very good condition.
