Default Unknown Mickey Mouse Badge

My guess is it is Kriegsmarine related so am posting it here. Please move if I am wrong.


Has anyone ever seen one of these badges before? I would love to know what it is (which unit) and if it's any good (original). I don't see any glaring issues from the images provided but, again, have never seen one before.




Thanks in advance for the help. EQ

I've never seen one before either Eric.

"If" it is original then I would also think that it is Minesweeper related ???

Cheers,Martin.

The number below the Mickey Mouse on the picture is 01660 which is the Feldpostnummer for 32. Minensuch-Flottille 3. Gruppe

Here is the same logo for the 32. Minensuch-Flottille

It looks like a cap badge and it looks ok from my side. But i haven´t seen this before.

Thank you Alex and to all who responded. I appreciate it. Mystery solved (as to the unit). As to originality, the construction and materials are similar to original FJ unit cap badges I have seen but that's about all I can say about it. It's kind of a neat piece (with the photo) if real. Thanks again.
