WW2 German SA Sports Badge, Gold Grade. The SA Sports Badge was a decoration of Nazi Germany that was issued between the years 1933 and 1945. It was a political version of the much more generic German Sports Badge which was also issued in great numbers by the Nazis. The SA Sports Badge was issued in three grades (bronze, silver, and gold) as well as a special version known as the "SA Sports Badge for War Wounded". Although originally designed as a physical fitness badge for Nazi storm troopers, the SA Sports Badge was issued across every German military and paramilitary organization. The SS held the SA Sports Badge in high regard, and many of its senior members, Heinrich Himmler, Karl Wolff, and Arthur Nebe among them, qualified for the decoration. The badge was also commonly issued to the Wehrmacht and was one of the few political decorations that the armed forces allowed to freely be displayed on a military uniform (other such decorations included the Blood Order and the Golden Party Badge). This badge is in very nice condition and retains the copper wearers pin to the reverse. It is marked on the reverse with "Berg & Nolte AG Ludenscheid & Eigentum D S.A. Sportabzeich Haupstelle".

RARE, 1914- 1924 American Harrison & Richardson Arms Company 1907 & 1909 Patent .32 Calibre Self Loading Pistol (Webley .32 Semi Auto). Sn 13690 - 13690
In 1905, the famous British revolver-making firm of P. Webley & Scott introduced a series of blowback-operated pistols in .25 and .32 calibers that were designed by William Whiting. The .32 model was adopted by a number of police departments in Great Britain and throughout the empire. After negotiations with Webley in 1909, H&R obtained a license to produce the British firm’s pistols for sale in North America, and in 1912, H&R introduced the Harrington & Richardson .25 Caliber Self-Loading Pistol. While the .25-caliber pistol was almost identical to the Webley design, H&R’s engineers, with the assistance of Whiting, decided that some improvements would make the larger caliber model more attractive to American buyers. First, they substituted a simple internal striker mechanism for the Webley’s cumbersome, external hammer. This provided a smoother, snag-free exterior and also did away with the heavy hammer spring, which made retracting the slide to chamber a round much easier. Also added was a grip safety that blocked movement of the firing pin unless it was fully depressed. In 1914 the Harrington & Richardson .32 Calibre Self-Loading Pistol was released on the market. It possessed the slab-sided, squared-off silhouette; sharp grip-to-frame angle; and exposed barrel common to the Webley semi auto pistols. The pistol had a 3.5-inch barrel and measured 6.5 inches overall. It weighed 20 ounces unloaded. Grips were hard rubber. Manufacture of the .32 pistol continued until 1924, with approximately 40,000 units being produced. During World War II, the U.S. government obtained numbers of nonstandard handguns, and a small number of H&R pistols were among them. According to Dutch arms expert Bas Martens, in 1941, the Koninlijk Nederlands-Indisch Leger (KNIL)–the military forces in the Dutch East Indies–obtained a quantity that were issued as the 7.65mm Pistool H&R. The Dutch national police used others in the postwar years. This is a rare, original H&R (Webley) .32 Calibre Automatic Pistol. It has the correct internal hammer & correct hard rubber chequered grips with embossed combined ‘HR’ roundel grips which are undamaged. The pistol is in very nice original and complete condition. It has a 'v' groove rear sight and a blade foresight. The 8 round magazine is released by pressing a button on the bottom of the frame between the grips, this operates as it should. On the left side of the receiver it has ‘H&R Self Loading Calber .32’ along with number ‘27910’ and ‘Safe’ above the frame mounted safety catch lever. The right side is stamped with Harrison & Richardson Arms Co address and Patent detail (all illustrated). The pistol strips, cocks and dry fires. It is complete with a de-activation certificate and the price includes UK delivery. Sn 13690
