Here is the last in the short series of my latest German police department patches. Today's patch is from Schleswig Holstein Polizei, the German State Police of Schleswig Holstein.
I am not certain of the exact age of the patch, but I am pretty sure it dates to the 1970's or 1980's. The patch was cut from an original uniform shirt and still has the shirt material sewn on the back. It has the hand written name and label that was applied by the former collector, on the back as well. The older styled patches are embroidered on a fabric background, as opposed to the newer patch styles that are all embroidered. This patch is of the older variety.
Here are a few closer pictures of the patch:
