G7053.5 SA Tinnie for Gruppe Hochland, 1939

This stunning bronze finished day badge was for an SA war sports competition held by Group Hochland in 1939. Hochland was a mountain group, hence the edelweiss (the traditional symbol of Germen and Austrian mountain troops) figures prominently in the design.

The design consists of a large edelweiss behind a short sword (similar to a Roman gladius) within a ring bearing the words "SA - Gruppe Hochland" and "SA - Gruppen Wettkampfe". The combined "SA" logo is over the sword's hilt at the 6 o'clock position. It measures a little over 2" tall.

It is a crisp stamping with a hollow reverse. The pin is located in a vertical position. It is maker marked "(RZM) M9/3" and "Klotz u. Kienast Muncen".

The tinnie is in near mint condition.

As one's collection grows, one sometimes forgets exactly what one has in his collection. That's how I obtained this one. I goofed and bought a duplicate.
