Title Kriegsmarine breast eagle, 1st pattern
Nationality German
Period c 1939
Price £30.00

This eagle was introduced in the mid-1930s when the new navy uniforms came into force. These were principally worn on the reefer jacket and the white summer tunic. All navy personnel would have worn them, officers wearing them in a gold bullion finish, while ORs wore them in a cotton/wool mix (as this one) and later in BeVo (rayon).

This is a gold cotton thread on a dark blue wool base and would appear to have been worn, there being signs of age staining on the front and reverse. Other than this, its condition is excellent. Wing tip to wing tip, this measures 9cm.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
