Silver washed, zinc alloy, die stamped construction. The plate was affixed to the cover of the leather cartouche box that police personnel wore on a bandolier when in a full dress uniform. The officer ranks wore a smaller box than the NCO ranks, and had a smaller eagle on the lid of their box. This is the smaller officer version of the police cartouche box plate, approximately 2 inches by 4 inches in size. The reverse of the swastika is maker marked "CTD". All three attachment loops remain present and intact. Excellent condition.
