Nice example the NSKOV Gorget worn by flag bearers in the Nationalsozialistischer Kriegsopferversorgung (NSKOV), an organization made up of war wounded, widows of fallen soldiers, parents and orphaned children of fallen soldiers, and members of the SA and Nazi Party who were wounded in street fighting during the Nazi rise to power. They were a uniformed organization with their own regalia and flags, and the people entrusted with carrying their standards at rallies and in parades wore this impressive gorget. The NSKOV gorget is made of lightweight metal, nickel plated. It measures about 4-3/4” across and 5-1/4” high. The heart-shaped backing plate features a separate gilt sunburst emblem, on top of this is a striking white and black painted NSKOV emblem featuring a swastika, sword and Iron Cross surrounded by a wreath. There is a gilt button on each upper corner. This one shows minor traces of age and wear, with some very minor spots on the nickeled backing plate and some light areas of lifting to the nickel. The back has the original dark blue fabric backing, and the hooks that would affix this to a standard bearer’s uniform. The chain is a replacement of the correct pattern but slightly heavier than the original that the gorget was issued with although this is hard to notice. The NSKOV gorget is not an easy piece of regalia to find.  LH11926
