As i mentioned yesterday i bought two shield. The first one I should is the Lappland and this is the other one.
Just as his wartime brother these are difficult to find. My only compare I had was a picture from Krantz’s book 1958, page 110. So it was a bit a leap of faith because there are also low quality fakes from this badge.
When I received it I immediately knew I was a lucky SOB. On the obverse you can see a little bit of wear / usage and it looks like buntmetall peeping through (for example the eagles claws). The feathers behind the claws show enough detail for me to judge this one as a good one.
The reverse is done the same way as the Lappland with some kind of cardboard. The 3 broad pins go through some kind of iron / cupper loops.
PS Sorry Rüdiger. Like I already said we are fishing in the same small pool. From now on I’ll keep my eyes open for you.
