Germany – Badge – U Boat
While we have recently added some premium U-Boot badges which are of manufacturer hallmarked and war time issue we offer a more modest version of this badge.
Whereas the other badges were of the one piece massive variety, this is far different. It is of the cliche or stamped variety. This is the same method that was used in the manufacture of wound badges. In looking at the obverse one cannot easily tell the difference. This example retains a burnished bronze color. As we turn the badge over we then see that it has been stamped. It has a sturdy vertical pin and the catch is in place.
This is a late war example of the badge.
