    Default Scarce marked Weidmann Kriegsabzeichen für Minesuch - Sicherungsverbände.

    Here's another relatively scarce Minesweeper badge, a marked Wiedmann. This maker only made their Minesweepers in zinc but can be found with variant hinges, the one below and also the more typical Wiedmann 'lily pad' type

    Marked with the "UU" mark which is correct for this maker this example retains much of the dark gilt finish to the wreath with the waterspout showing heavy patina.

    Thanks János,

    This was the first and only one I've seen for sale by this maker so jumped on it straight away! Two rare Minesweepers in as many weeks!

    Thank you Ingrid!

    Not the shiniest or best looking badge in the collection but a worthy addition due to the scarcity of this maker.

    Just as a small update, this badge has a replaced pin. Norm F has identified it and it makes sense so many thanks to him. Original Weidmann pins are a little thicker and not quite as long. While this is most likely a wartime replacement it should be noted for future reference.

    Congratulations on adding this one to your collection Adrian!
    As I had no family in the Kriegsmarine, I don't much follow their awards. I have one made by Schwerin that I will post on it's own thread at a later date.
