Here's a wonderful piece by Friedrich Orth (1.10)! The Krim Campaign Arm Shield was instituted on July 25th 1942 by Adolf Hitler. It was awarded to commemorate all members (air force, Navy and Army) who took part in an honorable way of fighting for the Crimean Peninsula, between September 21 1941 and July 4 1942. It is constructed out of a die stamped sheet metal base that has been bronzed washed and has four edge prongs. The shield shaped obverse depicts an open winged national eagle clutching a wreathed swastika in its talons which is beside "1941" and "1942" and is above the Crimean peninsula which is marked "Krim" All four prongs and the plate are intact. The detail and bronze wash is beautiful! See page 48 of Webers "The Krim Shield". An excellent Krim Arm Shield deserving of your collection!
