U-Boat Kreigsabzeichen Badge
One of my latest additions, a U-Boat war badge by Wilhelm Deumer of Ludenschied.
It is unmarked..
The badge has a width of inches (4.7 cm) and a height of inches (4 cm).
It weighs 22 g.
It's been in the wars, hence the bent pin bracket b-(
I liked it as soon as I saw it, and the slight damage was already done when the previous owner flogged it.
It came from a Navy Officer, who got it from his Father and it was damaged when his dad got it (?).
So it must have been damaged at sea, even maybe when the German submariner surrendered ?

Very nice, even better when you have it's history, it's certainly got that "been there" look. Leon.

Nice! Looks like it was ripped off some poor slob's uniform!

A very nice zinc Deumer.
It looks like it has been vaulted too.
A nice personalized badge.
