Here we have a Krimschild (Crimean Shield) by Unknown Maker 1.17! 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 steel sheet metal base that has been bronzed washed and is attached a steel plate. 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”. The reverse shows a steel plate that has four holes with tabs going through. All four tabs remain intact. It measures approximately 2 9/16 inches tall by 2 1/8 inches wide. So this one appears to be a worn original with replaced cloth and paper. Likely was worn out.
