A Heer Ärmelschild Kuban. The Kuban Arm Shield was awarded to those who fought to preserve the bridgeheads in the Kuban region from February 1943 until they were abandoned in October. It is constructed out of die stamped steel base that has been bronze washed and attached with prongs to a field gray wool and steel sheet metal plate, with a glued on black paper backing. The shield shaped obverse depicts an open winged national eagle clutching a wreathed swastika in its talons, surrounded by “1943” (19 ‐ left, 43 ‐ right) and above a bannered “Kuban” and a jagged rectangular line separating “Krymskaja” (left), “Lagunen” (top-right) and “Novorossiysk” (bottom-right). This is all outlined in a quality field gray wool backing. The reverse shows the steel crimped on plate and some of the paper backing. It measures approximately 2 7/8 inches tall by 2 1/2 inches wide. An excellent example!
