Blockade Runner Badge by W. Deumer

Here we have a rare variation Kriegsmarine Abzeichen für Blockadebrecher attributed to Wilhelm Deumer of Lüdenscheid. The Navy Blockade Runner Badge was awarded to non-military and later military personnel who gave service on auxiliary or merchant vessels employed in military duties which broke through the British sea blockade on Germany. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been chemically blackened and silver washed. The round shaped obverse features a merchant ship breaking through the sea, with a highly stylized silver Kriegsmarine eagle (with out-stretched wings clutching a swastika within its talons), which is all surrounded by elongated chain links. The full back reverse displays the correct; soldered on oval plate tombak block hinge, soldered on oval plate c-shaped catch and coke bottle pin. The details throughout the ship and eagle are wonderful. It measures approximately 1 15/16 inches in diameter. A rare and nice example!
