2nd Pattern S-Boat Badge by Adolf Scholze

2nd Pattern - Das Schnellbootkriegsabzeichen by Adolf Scholze of Grünwald a. N.. The Fast Attack Craft War Badge (Das Schnellbootkriegsabzeichen) was awarded to worthy individuals who had served in twelve combat engagements on fast attack craft or torpedo boats, other special circumstances may grant the award as well. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been blackened, silver washed and gold gilded. The obverse features a large S-boat breaking through the sea below a kriegsmarine eagle (with out-stretched wings, clutching a mobile swastika within its talons), which is all surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The full-back reverse of the badge is maker marked: “A.S”. It also displays a crimped on tombak; flat wire catch, ball hinge (minor oxidization), round wire top hook and steel pin. The pin works and is quite tightly set against the ball hinge. Beautiful silver wash, gilding and blackening remain. It measures 2 1/8 inches wide by 2 3/8 inches tall. A very nice one!
