Title High Seas Fleet badge
Nationality German
Period c 1941-45
Sold

This was introduced by Admiral Raeder, who was C-in-C, German Navy, and it is marked on the reverse 'ADOLF BOCK // AUSF.SCHWERIN.BERLIN'. To qualify for this award, 12 weeks' service on a battleship or cruiser was needed, which could be reduced if the recipient had been wounded during the cruise.

This is an early example, made of tombak with most of its original finish, viz the gilt wreath and the oxidised silver face of the ship.

The condition is excellent.

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.

...the sword arrived safely today... My son, who shares my interest in antique edged weapons and for whom I bought the sword, is delighted.
