Title High Seas Fleet miniature pin
Nationality German
Period c 1939-45
Sold

This was introduced by Admiral Raeder, who was C-in-C, German Navy. 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 example is the large size of miniature pin.

The condition is reasonably good for its age, even with traces of the original gilding on the wreath and the eagle. It would appear to be made of tombak, with a heavy duty silver plate finish, or possibly even solid silver throughout, but, in any case, it is unmarked, as most of these pieces were made up by jewellers.

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