Very nicely executed enamel and gold wash badge for 25 year veteran Eisenbahn Verein with the '25' being found in the silver washed oak leaf wreath at the bottom. I have seen this with a pin on the back for wear as a badge but this one has a post for wear as an oversized lapel pin. Looking at the finish on the reverse I don't believe this one ever had a different configuration. The device is 32x37mm. A bit then a normal lapel pin should be so the owner had bent the post in a bit to clamp on the fabric a little tighter. Interesting piece made with a high level of craftsmanship. Very light rub to the gold in the bottom center; Not excessive. Heavily backmarked and made by Franz Karbach.
