    Default Odd U-boot Kriegsabzeichen

    I am wondering if anyone can answer my question about an odd U-Boat badge I picked up in a vet group in 1981. Sorry no picture so I can only describe it. In lieu of the standard vertical mounting pin and clasp, it had two horizontal prongs for mounting to something. I always wondered if it was meant to be mounted to a plate for a sew on insignia. I thought about the piece recently and my old curiosity came back. Has anyone ever seen one of these? It was definnitely period original.

    Doesn't sound familiar to anything I've seen. Perhaps intended for mounting on a plaque or presentation?

    I had thought about that at the time but the pins did not seem to be long enough. I wish I had taken pictures but another time and attitude in collecting.
