Shooting King Competition Medal Chain
1934 - 1940/41
Third Reich Shooting King Chain Award: Solid silver chain, shields, and bezels; five rare NSDAP silver medals and one cameo porcelain medal, set in handmade silver bezels with hand engraved silver scrolls, even the chain is hand made, for unknown shooting festival city. Unlike most shooting chains, the sponsors of this festival were well funded and ardent National Socialists. This will make a very good research project, the shooting kings shouldn't be too hard to track down, the city newspaper and party magazines probably had great articles and photos of the event! Overall moderate wear matched by a very reasonable and moderate price.

The handmade bezel on this centerpiece porcelain medal was made by a master silversmith. It is made from two intricately twisted wires that are then twisted and soldered together, bent in a circle, cut to size, then soldered to the bezel with no trace of solder. A very hard bezel to make with just one chance to firmly set the large rare fragile medal!
