    Default Hilfskreuzer Kriegsabzeichen - Steinhauer & Lück

    Folks,

    So I have been on the hunt for an Auxiliary Cruiser badge for a little while - they can be quite expensive, but I managed to get a really good deal on this even if it is not perfect.
    This is a Steinhauer & Lück with type 1 globe. The type 1 is generally considered to be war time produced globe - it can be determined by the more narrow longitudinal lines, differences to the bow wave and some other small details.

    The reverse hardware for these types of awards varies with up to 6 accepted pins, hinges and catches including the one shown here.

    I used Weber/Skora to research the award but also the posts by Norm F and Martin W who discuss the differences in globe types in detail - many thanks.

    Martin - I can see why you like these awards so much. I had not appreciated how nice they are until having one in hand.
    Hope you like,

    Nick
