Talking Kriegsmarine 1/172 PFORZHEIM title and U-boat Badge and case, help!

Hi all,

I was offered a collection from a friend and am doing some research for him. There was a U-boat badge, a 1/172 PFORZHEIM 1/172 title, and a Pforzheim small wooden jar/pot that held both items. Unfortunately I have not been able to find what ship this was off, if anyone had an idea I would love to know!

There may be a name attached to the group, but sadly there was no paper documentation. If anyone could give me an idea of value, authenticity and what variation the items are I would appreciate it.

Cheers and thanks!

My guess would have been that it was Marine HJ cap tally ?

Cheers,Martin.

Hi Martin
Sorry for the incorrect terminology but that in essence is what I was implying, I was just being lazy.

By the way, that Schwerin has a little green verdigris and quite a bit of gild left IMO.

Do not try to remove the verdigris, that is nice to see in many badges.
