A very good used example of a Kriegsmarine Auxiliary Cruiser War Badge struck from Tombak with a fire gilded finish.
Although no maker’s name appears I’m inclined to think this badge is by C.E. Juncker with such features as the hinge block, coastline profile on the globe and indeed the separate face of the globe itself pointing to this manufacturer.
A portion of the right side of the gilded wreath along with the bow of the Viking ship and the reverse of the badge in the same areas have become discoloured and this may suggest loss of the gilding. Other than these points there is no damage to the badge which still remains a very appealing and rather rare badge.
