Adlerschild des Deutschen Reiches

Post by owl » 19 Jun 2002 04:09

I am looking for information about this German award, the Adlerschild des Deutschen Reiches. I know it was presented to many people, but I am specifially interested in the award made to Gustav Krupp.
And in general, how many were issued and how many are still around. I read one Web site that indicated these medals were quite rare. Any idea of their value.
Any help?

Thanks for the pictures. I have seen one, but without the base, just the round medal.

Still looking for approximate value

Value depends if all original, on original base, or cased

Post by WCSTUMP » 19 Jun 2002 05:07

I would say that an Original Eagle Shield on its base, in its case, and all 100% original would be priced over $25,000.00. Just the medallion without a base would bring way less.

According to Dr. Heinrich Doehle, the Eagle Shield was given in recogition of oustanding creative contributions to the German people by individuals of high academic background. As of 1 January 1943, only 60 had been awarded.

The Factbook

Just out of interest I contributed an article on the Third reich Factbook which Marcus has posted there on the subject of the Eagle Shield. I am currently finishing part 2 which details the awars to third reich recipients and names each one. I have a pciture of the reverse of the Krupp shield as it happens. It was awarded on 7.8.1940. The inscription reads; Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Dem Deutschen Wirtschaftsfuhrer; Der Fuhrer 7. VIII. 1940
Hope this is [slightly late] of some use to you.
I may be able to copy the pic if interested.
Also there are 57 documented recipients with 2 further unverified names to my knowlege.
Regards
Matt Gibbs
