    Default Deumer Kriegsabzeichen für Minesuch - Sicherungsverbände in tombac.

    A tombac Deumer badge was a new arrival in the Minesweeper fleet today. You can find these in zinc very easily but the tombac badges seem to be harder to find and so I was very pleased to add this example. Not marked but undoubtedly from Deumer as they were the only maker to use the horizontal pin and top hook arrangement on the reverse.
    The badge is in great condition, the gold finish on the wreath is reasonably good, although worn down to the base metal in several places which contrasts well with the darkly coloured water spout. At first glance the reverse looks like it's been cleaned with sandpaper but the apparent striations were made before the hardware was added so I can only conclude that the marks were made at time of manufacture. A decent example of a worn badge.
    Enjoy the pics.

    A very nice addition to your collection Adrian. These are very striking badges and as you say the gold is in lovely condition.

    Cheers Sonny. If you only get one, do yourself a favour and get a Rudolf Karneth badge in tombac. You can find them easily in very good condition and the sparkle of the fire gilting is really stunning when it catches the light.
