Coburg Honour Badge

(Das Coburger Abzeichen)


The Coburg Badge (Das Coburger Abzeichen) was the first badge recognised as a national award of the Nazi Party (NSDAP).

On 14 October 1922 Adolf Hitler led 800 members of the SA from Munich and other Bavarian cities by train to Coburg for a weekend rally.

Once there, numerous pitched street battles with leftists and communists occurred.

In the end, the final victory belonged to the Nazis. Later, the day was known as the Deutscher Tag in Coburg (German Day in Coburg).

Hitler ordered the Coburg Badge to be struck on 14 October 1932 to memorialise the event which took place ten years earlier.
