Title U-boat service badge
Nationality German
Period c 1940
Sold

Maker marked 'Schwerin Berlin 68'. This is an early war bronze example by the best maker in the field. It was a hard-earned badge as it was only given after several combat cruises.

A nice example with some 50% of its original gilt finish. There is some old nicotine (?) staining to the face of the badge, which should easily clean with ammonia, but, as I get older, I sometimes feel things are best left as they are!

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
