    Default Krim Shield

    Hi Guys,
    I used to collect militaria when I was younger and recently unearthed my collection when clearing out my parents loft!

    What are your thoughts on the authenticity of this Krim Shield? I have owned it from around 20 years, can't remember where I picked it up from...

    It seems quite good - there are all six towns present, and there is the tiny inlet of land visible directly underneath the crooked cross.

    The backing is a very thin steel with two holes for pins at the top corners and one at the bottom.

    Cheers!

    A nice original shield by Friedrich Orth. Not easy to find with the side tabs.

    Nice shield...

    Hope that helps....Peter

    Thanks Peter - that's good to know. I've been researching them a little online and couldn't find any other examples with side tabs rather than the usual four tabs on the back.
