Description

The Auxiliary Cruiser War Badge (German: Kriegsabzeichen für Hilfskreuzer) was a World War II German military decoration awarded to officers and men of the Kriegsmarine for service on Auxiliary Cruisers or the supply ships that supported them for a successful large voyage. The award was instituted on 24 April 1941 by Grand Admiral Erich Raeder.  This badge appears to be an unmarked 2 part Juncker example in Buntmetall and is in outstanding condition, retaining most of the original factory gold finish to the wreath and ship, and a nice patina to the globe.
