(CS976) A Cholm Arm Shield. This is a Nice clean example manufactured from a magnetic metal. The shield is the army version that appears to have been unworn and unused. The shield still retains much of its original lacquer although it is peeled on some of the high spots. The green backing cloth is nice and clean and has no mothing, although the nap of the cloth is a little thread bare. For an item over 70 odd years, that is very minor. The shield is then fixed through a magnetic backing plate by three prongs that are then folded over, and a secondary piece of cloth has been stuck over this. This is one of the best examples we have had in a long time. As fewer than 6,000 were issued, though more were given, it rates on the rareity with the German Cross in gold, in my opinion. GBP 2500.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS882) A Nice example of a Zinc Demjansk Armshield. The shield is in very good condition although the silver wash has now flaked and faded. The shield is mounted onto a green woolen backing cloth with a metal back plate. The pins are then folded over and a brown paper backing has been glued. GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)

(S105) A Nice and Scarce example of an Army Narvik Shield being the type that has the infill between the eagle's head and wings. Attributed to the firm of Deumer, this award is mounted onto army green backing cloth with a zinc back plate and then a secondary piece of cloth glued over this. The shield is of zinc construction and retains some of its original aluminim finish, although this has streaked as can be seen from the scan. Very nice and scarce shield to find, less than 10,000 were issued, although more were manufactured. This one has been pinned on a display board at some time and may well have come from a Deumer manufacturing board. GBP 375.00 (UK Pounds)

(K911) A Nice example of a zinc Demjansk Shield. This is the type with the curved propellor and the seraph J found in the Forman Price Guide and attributed to Roger Bender (not this shield but this style), who has stated that he has had this shield type since the 1950's and was given it by his relative. There is much controversy over these shields by certain people who have said this type did not exist before 1980. I feel this conclusively proves the matter. The shield is of pressed zinc metal with a luftwaffe cloth backing that has a zinc shield fitted to that with the prongs of the shield bent over and then a paper backing affixed. The backing is in good condition but has come away in parts. All in all, a nice unusual shield and a good talking point. GBP 275.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC647) A Demjansk Armshield in Zinc. The armshield is of nice quality and construction with some zinc striping to the shield. This type of shield is shown in the Forman price quide and attributed to the well known author James Roger Bender who has had this style of armshield in his possession from the 1950's. When quationed about it, he stated his uncle bought it back at the end of the war. This type is often confused with the Flock copies from the 1980's, but has been proven that Flock actually copied this style. GBP 235.00 (UK Pounds)

(L586) A nice Luftwaffe Demjansk Armshield being the steel style which retaiins virtually all of it's original silver finish with only a little minor rusting as can be seen. The shield is mounted on Luftwaffe backing and has a magnetic back plate, with the pins affixed through in the diamond pattern. All in all, a very nice example, being slightly convexed. GBP 195.00 (UK Pounds)

(N39) A Nice example of a magnetic edge tab attached Krim Armshield. The shield is of nice quality manufactured from steel with a bronze plating applied. As can be seen from the scan, there has been some rusting to the shield and then it has been treated with a rusting agent. This is only really noticeable when examined under a magnifying glass and is only minute in a couple ofb places. The backing cloth, which is army green, is unmothed and nice and near mint unmounted condition. The shield then has four edge prongs attached to a steel back plate which has a light brown paper backing cloth applied over that. The condition of the shield is very nice overall. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(R7) A Magnetic Krim Arm Shield with a magnetic back plate affixed to a piece of black backing cloth. There is no paper affixed to the reverse and there appears to have never been any and this has toned to a nice over all light brown colour. There is a little handling wear to the top corners of the shield, which can be seen from the scan. The shield has edge tab fixings holding it to the back plate. The steel shield still retains much of its original bronzing and is in near mint condition, with no rusting. GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

 

On 140 pages and with the help of more than 800 colour pictures, Sascha Weber describes the Krim Shield and all its manufacturers, including the extremely rare Maedicke. Miniatures, documents and entries in the Wehrpass and Soldbuch, as well as the 1957 version and the discussion of the most dangerous fakes make this comprehensive book an invaluable addition to every collector's library!

DRIVERS BADGES

(CS902) A Nice example of a Driver's Merit Badge on Luftwaffe backing cloth. The badge shows a steering wheel to the centre within an oakleaf wreath.

(J1834) A nice unissued Silver Drivers Badge on a bluish cotton. The badge is still in it's original LDO cellophane packet that has LDO to the front and the guarantee terms to the back.
