A Variation 1 - Kriegsabzeichen für Marineartillerie by Friedrich Linden of Lüdenscheid 1943.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 maker marked “FLL 43” (Friedrich Linden, Lüdenscheid 1943). It also displays the correct soldered on and outlined; steel sheet metal hinge, soldered on tombak round wire catch and steel coke bottle pin. All of the components continue to work well. Minor zinc pest. It measures 1 5/8 inches wide by 2 1/8 inches tall. A nice one!
