Zerstoyer of Destroyer badge from the Kriegsmarine from unknown manufacturer and with the “elegant” horizontal coke bottle style pin and locating lug reverse.
Close up of the Wave and destroyer detailing. These features are extremely fine in some cases and therefore difficult to reproduce accurately.
Reverse of Destroyer badge showing the horizontal pin and superior locating lug
Locating lug, Note that it has a base plate for soldering direct to the reverse of the Zerstroyer badge.
Hinge assembly for the horizontal pin attatched to the reverse of the Destroyers bow.
Catch manufactured from bent over flatwire to retain the “coke” bottle style pin. Again the mounting plate which is common with “Zinc” badges where soldering directly would see the introduction of too much heat into the badge structure.
