    Type I awards are numbered up to ca. 1550. Only one of these was awarded to a woman (Nurse Pia, No. 25). Type II awards are numbered up to ca. 4000. About 20 of these were awarded to women. Unnumbered examples are known to exist, but their purpose is unknown. They may have been honorary awards. Matching sets or badges from key figures of the Third Reich are more expensive.

History


The Order was founded in 1934 by the Nazi Regime and was originally conferred upon Party members who participated in Hitler's failed Beer Hall Putsch in Munich on November 9, 1923.

The First issue of the Decoration was awarded to 1500 participants of the putsch who had been members of the party or one of its organizations since before January 1932, or to cadets of the Munich Infantry School who had marched in support of the Nazis in Ludendorff.

All medals feature a unique serial number, which was associated with the medal recipient.

This Order was also known as the Honour Badge of 9. November 1923.

The inscription on reverse reads, ‘UND IHR HABT DOCH GESIEGT,’ which translates to, “...and you triumphed nevertheless!”
