A German Navy Belt and Buckle with mutiple badges attached

(NBB1)A German Navy Belt and Buckle. The blue canvas woven belt has several German Navy Badges affixed to it. The badges consist of a Minesweeper by the maker WH as marked on the pin. This is an Earlier war badge and retains virtually all of its original silver, gilt and oxidised finish. The U-Boat Badge, probably an FO example, this has faded to a light cream colour and although the badge is still mint, the finish has been absorbed as can be seen, this would therefore date the badge to 1943 period. A Coastal Artillary Badge, which maybe is an HA type, this has a countersunk hook and hinge and the finish has faded to a pale silver colour for the wreath, with the silver gun centre toning grey. The High Seas Fleet Badge, probably FO, this has the separate hinge and hook for the earlier style, which proabably dates the badge to around 1941. There is some oxidisation to both wing tips of the gilt wreath and the silver battle ship has turned a slate greay. The Blockade Runner's Badge being a Schwerin manufactured example, is of Earlier manufacturing quality of better metal, with a good finish. As is often the case, the bright silver eagle has tarnished, but nothing too bad. The Two Navy Cap Eagles are both in good bright condition, one appears to be a stick pin, the other has two pins. An Auxillary Cruiser Badge, probably by FO, of one piece construction, is in very nice condition with the gilt wreath going a pale yellow and the silver globe going a silver grey colour. An E-Boat Badge 2nd Pattern, by Schwerin, this is a mid 1943 example with a cut out swastika and deck flag. As is often the case with this badge, the wreath has gone a lemon yellow silverish colour, with the waves still being the oxidised gun metal and the boat a two toned silver. A Navy Croatian Legion Badge, this is the silver pressed type with a white enamelled anchor and a red enamelled chequer board. The enamel is all intact with no damage and the badge has a broad bladed pin fitted to the reverse, and I believe it to be a Croatian manufacturer. An Old Comrades 10 Year Stick Pin, consisting of an iron cross with crossed swords with a black enamelled cross and a red enamelled centre. The stick pin has been cut short. A Destroyer's Badge by SCHuCo, being a mid war example with still much finish left to the wreath, with the silver destroyer again with a lot of finish left. Then we have an anodised aluminiuam trade Navy Eppaulette Emblem, this is complete with two pins and is in good condition. Then , we have a Bronze Panzer Badge appears to be an unmarked example manufactured in about 1943 and is the daisy variation. Then finally is the belt buckle itself which is marked CTD1943. This retains about 75% of its original gilt finish to the front and a higher proportion to the reverse. The canvas belt also has its original clip and tongue fixings with the leather tongue being marked with an A and an RB number as well as the size of 98 (or 86 depending which way round).For the entire grouping GBP 3250.00 (UK Pounds)
