A LDO Cellophane Packaged – Variation 1 - Kriegsabzeichen für Marineartillerie by Friedrich Linden of Lüdenscheid. The Navy Coastal Artillery Badge was awarded to the crews of Kriegsmarine land-based marine artillery and anti-aircraft units. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been gold washed and blackened. The obverse depicts an anti-aircraft gun that is in front of a coast, is below a Kriegsmarine eagle (with out-stretched wings, clutching a swastika within its talons) and is surrounded by an oak leaf wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The full back reverse is correctly maker marked, in relief: “FLL 43”. It also displays the correct; tombak soldered on round wire catch, soldered on steel sheet metal hinge and steel round wire pin. It measures approximately 1 5/8 inches wide by 2 1/8 inches tall. The badge comes housed in its LDO cellophane package. The package is split down the center 65% of the way. The badge has been removed at some point. A rare assembly!
