A Kriegsabzeichen für Marineartillerie by Rudolf Souval of Vienna. 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 gilded and black burnished and finished in a protective lacquer coating. 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 clearly maker marked “R.S.”. It also displays the correct soldered on; steel sheet metal hinge, soldered on tombak round plate round wire catch and tombak round wire pin. All of the components continue to work well. Minor age fading. It measures approximately 1 5/8 inches wide by 2 1/8 inches tall. A good one.
