K005679 U-BOAT WAR BADGE. (U-Boot-Kriegsabzeichen)

BACKGROUND: The U-Boat War Badge was instituted by Gro▀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.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Die struck tombac/brass badge with a fire gilted finish in the form of a horizontally oval laurel leaf wreath with a national eagle with spread wings superimposed to the top center, encompassing a profile view of a submarine. The badge is nicely detailed and features veins to the laurel leaves, cut-out detailing to the submarine's conning tower, flag, and the forward deck gun. The plain, solid reverse has a solid hinge, a broad, tapered, vertical pin and catch all intact. Nice, early, unmarked Juncker production. Excellent badge!
