A GERMAN CASED BLOCKADE RUNNERS WAR BADGE

(R438) A Navy Blockade Runner's Badge with it's Miniature in near mint condition. The badge is a nice gun metal and silver plated example, being the type with the secondary dished centre to the reverse. This is commonly called the 2nd Pattern in some reference books. The badge has a nice silvered eagle holding a polished swastika on the prow of a cruise liner type vessel. This is breaking the chains or British blockade in its symbolic form. The badge is manufactured by the premier maker Schwerin and is marked as such to the reverse, along with the designer's name which reads as follows;- FEC. OTTO PLACZEK BERLIN, second line, AUSF SCHWERIN BERLIN. The badge also has its small Miniature being the 9mm size, which is again in very nice condition. The pair are contained in the original presentation box that has a cut out for the badge and a piece of cloth to hold the pin. The Case is blue lined paper with a paper hinge that is unfortunately split, as is often the case. The hinge protector is holding it all together. Very scarce to find in this condition, a superb textbook example of this award in Case of Issue with Miniature. GBP 725.00 (UK Pounds)
