Description

Beautiful Schwerin High Seas Fleet Badge.  This is an early production badge with impressed reverse and with the 'alignment marks' along the bottom edge. Finish is nearly perfect, with only light wear to the prow of the ship, and the six o-clock position of the wreath.  Gilded tombac, maker marked "FEC. ADOLF BOCK / AUSF. SCHWERIN. BERLIN" on the reverse, The catch has been replaced, possibly during the period (since the early catches were fairly thin) but impossible to say exactly when. 43.8 mm x 57 mm, vertical pinback.
