Not too often do you see these 1st pattern ones! Here we have a Navy EM/NCO ”Donald Duck’ Cap Eagle and Cockade. This cap badge is constructed out of multi-pieces. The eagle is a die stamped tombak base that has been gold gilded. The cockade has a red felt center piece, a die stamped silvered tombak middle section and black pressed cardboard backing. The obverse shows a gold 1st pattern Kreigsmarine eagle (with out-stretched wings clutching a wreathed swastika within its talons) above a black, white and red cockade. The hollow back shows a soldered and knurled stickpin, with a soldered on plate that holds the pronged cockade in place. It measures approximately 1 3/4 inches tall by 1 1/2 inches wide. A beautiful piece!
