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.

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.
