The Prussian Veterans Association Krieger Verband Stickpin is a small pin that was worn by members of the Krieger Verband, a veterans association in Prussia, Germany. The stickpin features a oak leaf and crown design on a gold-plated metal base, with the words "Krieger Verband" engraved in the center portion of the pin.

The Krieger Verband was established in 1874 as an organization for veterans of the Franco-Prussian War. The group was formed to provide support and camaraderie to those who had fought in the war, and to commemorate the bravery and sacrifices of those who had fallen. The Krieger Verband became one of the most important veterans associations in Germany, and played a significant role in shaping the country's military culture and national identity.

During World War I, the Krieger Verband supported the German war effort by providing financial assistance to soldiers and their families, and by organizing patriotic events and rallies. However, following the end of the war, the organization faced significant challenges as Germany's defeat and the Treaty of Versailles led to a decline in national pride and a shift in public opinion against militarism.

Despite these challenges, the Krieger Verband continued to operate throughout the Weimar Republic and into the Nazi era. During the Nazi period, the organization was absorbed into the larger National Socialist Veterans Association, which promoted a militaristic and nationalist agenda.

Today, the Krieger Verband is no longer in operation, but its legacy continues to be remembered through the stickpins and other memorabilia that were produced during its existence. The stickpins are highly collectible and are valued for their historical significance and cultural importance.
