Attached is a photo of the gold version I referenced earlier in this thread. As you can see it is missing the pin. And now the story.....was brought in along with a book and two post cards by an elderly lady. Seller claimed original owners were family members. The book is "Hofjuden" by Julius Streicher. The book has a 1938 XMAS dedication to Gunther Ollert from his alleged brother in law and Feucht Ortsgruppenleiter Jobst Metz. Came with two photo postcards of Metz. The gold tinnie supposedly belonged to him. Do not know whether he was awarded a blood order but I think it is possible.

I saw this photo a few weeks ago in the new documentation centre in Munich. The majors of Munich. Note the badge in wear, I wouldn't bet against these badges being gold in colour, as a special higher grade for such high ranking politicians. Here is mine, this was belonging to a AH Stosstrupp guy who was also a holder of the blood order and a fairly big cheese in Munich.

These badges have also been seen with solid back plates and military style pins as well. These badges were held in high regard by some participants of the 10 year anniversary of the putsch.

Looks like Franz Xaver Schwarz is wearing a "mayor's chain" around the neck like the other guys in the first row. The caption refers to Bavarian mayors. Was Schwarz a mayor of a Bavarian city or just a Munich city council member ?

First session of an all Nazi Munich city council on July 25, 1933; I spy a few chains in the background:
