Although I don't collect these and my knowledge is therefore limited...I do like the terrific detail on the eagle/wreath...!
Nice type 'H' badge with original case, glad to see you did your homework on this piece, it's great.

Thank you for your comments - i got no exactly Information about the vet but the seller told me that the Family is still looking for the Award document but it didn't turn up yet. I only know that the vet came from the Area around Innsbruck / Tirol in Austria. If the document will turn up he will phone me.
Yes the Cloth badge come with the Award. This one was pinned in the case originally as i got it. I think it was pinned by the vet into the case with a common needle.
a marvellous find.
Excellent find for an antiques market. These don't turn up everyday and the cloth badge and the provenance make it even better. Thank you for posting.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Uncommon badge with a Juncker eagle and Juncker wreath,but build together from "IMME".In Toms para book the type G with the silver wreath.
