Navy High Seas Fleet Badge by Schwerin-This impressive looking badge features a large battle ship in the center, encircled by an oak leaf wreath. At the top is a large national eagle with outstretched wings. Produced in zinc, this badge is missing all of its finish from the obverse. The details are impressive still with only minor wear present. The badge is slightly convex, giving the reverse a gently scooped look. The reverse features a raised maker motto, "F.O." indicating production by Friedrich Orth of Vienna. The hinge and catch are cast and there is a round needle pin. A sound example of a scarce badge priced to sell quickly!
