    Default 1957 Kreigsmarine War badges.

    Gentlemen, apologies for posting here, but I find the Kreigsmarine War badges to be the most beautiful of all Third Reich badges....but as I initially collect Imperial German, I just admired them in other peoples collections, however since diversifying into the Bundeswehr and the 1957 regulation awards, I have suddenly found myself purchasing a few, I think they justify a wider audience, as the Bundeswehr sub section is I suspect is rarely visited......and I think many would miss out on veiwing these rather nice officially sanctioned post war badges, I hope you enjoy them as much I have....First up, the Submarine War badge (U-Boot Kreigsabzeichen) followed by a Blockade Runners badge (Abzeichen fur Blockadbrecher) both these badges are mid production, mid to late 1960's....more to follow.
    Prost ! Steve.

    As promised a couple more....High seas fleet badge (Flotten-Kreigsabzeichen) mid 1960's production and a Minesweeper badge (Kreigsabzeichen fur Minensuch) this badge is the earliest of the four being constructed from left over wartime parts, (hinge block,pin and clasp) in the 57-58 period.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Even without the eagle and swastika they are some of the best looking badges from that period and i can see what the attraction is in collecting them

    Superb early examples and I totally agree with you, the Kreigsmarine badges are indeed very beautiful. I have recently begun collecting them myself and now have 4 nice 57 Badges, A high fleets seas badge, auxilliary cruiser, destroyer badge and an early produced Infantry assault badge. Well done and I hope to find similiar early pieces myself.

    Best regards,

    Stuart

    Hi Gentlemen, here is a link to my modest beginners collection thus far (apologies that my photos are not of the same high standard on this thread) the final comparison shot of my 57 Destroyer badge with a wartime D-Nazified minesweeper is to demonstrate the over all quality and similarities of the earlier produced 1957 awards with wartime quality. Enjoy! oh and comments very welcome indeed.

    Regards, Stuart. Apologies as link is not working, having issues posting my pics.http://<div style="width:480px;text-..." /></a></div>
