Kriegsmarine U-Boat War Badge 

$729.49

The U-Boat War Badge was instituted by Commander in Chief of the Navy and Grand Admiral Erich Raeder on October 13th 1939 for award to all ranks of U-Boat personnel who had served on at least two sorties against the enemy or were wounded in action. The badge was to be worn on the lower left breast of most uniforms.

 

This is a die struck solid backed, alloy construction badge with a bright, fire gilted finish. The solid reverse has a soldered, solid block type hinge, a broad tapering pin and a soldered catch all intact. The badge is in very good condition and still retains most of it’s original fire gilt paint.

 

Very nice exampel!!
