Default GPB small beauty

Here’s one I haven’t posted here but I think is a real beauty.
Neato is the word we used back in the day.
I am posting it beside a Deschler I have with the company markings on back, for comparison. They are almost twins.

Two excellent small Deschlers; thanks for sharing them with us, John. Do you have an ID on #86792?

Cheers,

Br. James,
Yes, thanks to the former owner of this badge, luckily I have his info. He was a shoemaker from Oberdonau, and a BlockLeiter.
Thank you kindly, sir!

I like the badges that were attributed to average people because they were the backbone of the party.

Thanks for this, Joe; can you share the name of the GPB Träger for #86792?

If you need the ID for your #93976, just let me know.

Cheers,

Br. James

Joe,
Thanks from me again from me also!

When I get back from a business trip I can share the name.
But if you like, please share.
I don’t want to screw up the spelling!
John

Br. James, #86792 was found by McDivitt. It was owned by Hans Secklehner, a master shoe maker from Gau Oberdonau (Austria). #93976 was identified from the Gau Hesse-Nassau list.
