Was raining yesterday, so put all of by Nasjonal Samling items into a display. Fledgling collection, I tried to separate from top to bottom by organization...party, Hirdmarinen, Youth groups, GSSN, and Labor Service. Had to use thread on a couple of badges that are unfortunately missing their pins. Hoping to watch it grow over time...this case will probably work for awhile, the stuff's tough to find.

I wasn't aware of these insignia before you started to post your collection. Regarding to what I found online about theses items these must be very rare (and cool!) collectibles. Great collection, thanks for sharing!

They are quite tough to find...and it seems like many Norwegian collectors don't like to sell it out of Norway, so makes it even tougher

Figured I'd post some close-ups of some of this stuff, with links to where some was discussed in the forum, in case members are interested...

 

On the flanks are the 1941 and 1943 Hirdmonstringen badges. These are essentially tinnies for the Nasjonal Samling version of Nuremberg rallies. In the center is a Verneidrett (sports badge) in bronze, and originall would have had tabs/prongs on the rear for wear, but sadly they are missing...

 

The Hirdmonstringen badges were posted for discussion here... http://www.worldmili...tringen-badges/

A Hirdmarine raven...these were worn on both the sleeve and cap of the Nasjonal Samling's naval force. Quisling envisioned them as the future Navy of Norway, but the Germans did not want to give up control of the seas, and the organization never got too large. This seems to be a fairly tough patch to find, I didn't know it when I bought I stumbled on it, but have seen it missing from several large collections...

 

It was discussed here... http://www.worldmili...the-hirdmarine/

Cap ravens...the gold one in center was used by the Rikskird, the Nasjonal Samling version of the SA, and had a painted sun cross. The prongs on these were thin wire and are often missing. There was a rash of repros in the 60s-70s out of England that either use flat German-style prongs and/or enameled sun crosses...the cap badges never used enamel, unfortunately, but it allows for telltale signs of fakes

 

The gray/silver ravens on the top and bottom were for the youth groups. The marinen youth did not use a painted sun cross, whereas all other youth groups did. These had a silver wash, which is usually missing as often as prongs are.

 

These ravens were discussed here... http://www.worldmili...sjonal-samling/

A German-made sleeve raven for a member of the GSSN, the Norwegian SS. The GSSN was a rare example of an SS organization not controlled by the Germans, however about half of the GSSN later served in German SS units such as Wiking on the Eastern Front. These ravens were often sewn right over the German SS sleeve eagles that came pre-sewn from the factory.

Brig,

 

Really excellent information on these NS insignia.  The only decent references I have found are the Littlejohn series on volunteer and collaborationist organizations that was published by Roger Bender and is now out of print.  

 

Thanks for showing and explaining!

There are errors in the Littlejohn work, I believe.

 

There are two references in Norway...one is written in both English and Norwegian, half of each page in each language, and is out of print. The other is written by a notorious faker, depicts fronts of badges only and he uses his fakes in the book to try to legitimize them.

 

It truly is an interesting niche...and one that takes a LOT of research and patience to get to know. Google translate has been my friend in the learning process

Picked this up a couple months ago... An Allgemeine SS shoulder strap. As it lacks a tag, I figure it best used towards my GSSN display.

 

The GSSN wore the same shoulder straps as the German A-SS...and from what I've been able to surmise, it is the only piece of insignia used by the GSSN that was never made in Norway, all were imported from Germany.

A couple photos pulled from the internet showing GSSN troops wearing the strap, as well as the raven posted earlier in the thread:
