The Narkvik Shield was awarded to all German forces that took honorable part in the battles of Narvik between 9 April and 8 June 1940. It is constructed out of die stamped cupal base that has been silver washed. The shield shaped obverse depicts a closed winged national eagle clutching a wreathed static swastika in its talons above a three step pedestal and a bannered “Narvik”, an edelweiss flower, that is surrounded by “1940” ” (19 – left, 40 – right) and above a crossed plane propeller and fouled anchor and rope, all which lies in front of an oval steel sheet metal backing. The edelweiss for the Gebirgsjäger, the Anchor for the Kriesmarine and a propeller for the Luftwaffe. The reverse shows the oval steel backing along with four round holes where the folded over flat wire prongs are attached. The obverse shows beautiful and crisp details! It measures approximately 3 5/8 inches high by 1 11/16 inches wide. Beautiful!
