GERMANY – PIN – PATRIOTIC – COLORIZED PHOTOGRAPH – NAVY ENLISTED MAN.
This is one of the most exciting German patriotic photograph pins that we have ever obtained. To begin it is colorized but above all it is for an Enlisted sailor in the Kaiserliche Marine.
As we have shared with you in the past the Imperial German Navy was a faction of the size of the German army and consequently items attributed to it are also quite limited.
As we view the photograph we see a young sailor with an impressive mustache, as one would expect from a sailor, dressed in his Naval Winter jumper and Winter mütze. I can not fully determine what unit he was attached to but it is NOT a ship and rather an abteilung of some sort.
This photograph which measures .75” in diameter is mounted in a fancy gold toned frame which measures 1.25” x 1.25”. At the 6 o’clock point there is a small bit of red cut glass. On the reverse we see a horizontal pin and what appears to be a manufacturer hallmark ( S )in the center.
Overall condition is excellent.
