An Excellent Kriegsmarine Officer Summer Tunic Breast Eagle by Maedick

An Excellent Kriegsmarine Officer Summer Tunic Breast Eagle by Maedick

Code: 56642

SOLD

A virtually mint example of a Summer  Tunic Eagle worn by Kriegsmarine Officers on the white tunic.

By far the most desirable of these eagles are those constructed of gilded aluminium and made by the firm of Maedicke, as we have here.

The obverse consists of a finely detailed Kriegsmarine eagle clutching a wreath and mobile swastika, the reverse with an integral barrel hinge and tapering horizontal pinback meeting a round wire catch,  marked “M” for Maedicke.

It would be difficult to upgrade this excellent example
