This is a very nice Wehrwolf tinnie and I'm happy that I'm the new owner.

Thanks Dion, for this new piece in my collection!

I have already a few pieces, but this one is my new favorite. It has an outstanding design!

I read, that the Wehrwolffuehrer F. Kloppe wrote in a publication about this event (Wehrsporttag in Bonn 1928) an explanation, why the Wehrwolf used the skull symbol:

"Totenkopffahne und Totenkopfabzeichen sind uns ein Wahrzeichen dafür, dass die Wehrwölfe bereit sind, wenn es gilt, auch für ihre Ideale ihr Leben zu lassen."

The skull shows, a Wehrwolf is ready to die for his ideals!
