WWII German Kriegsmarine Destroyer War Badge by Friedrich Orth-This badge was awarded for 1) participation in three engagements with the enemy; 2) participation in three offensive mine laying operations; 3) 12 operations against the enemy without contact, and under several other possible qualifying conditions. The design was by renowned Berlin artist Paul Casberg. This example is produced in zinc, with fairly crisp details. The finish is basically missing throughout, except on the destroyer and ocean which retain a vast majority of their grey finish. The reverse features a round needle, vertically mounted pin. The hinge is sheet metal, the catch is missing. This example is produced by Friedrich Orth and it is marked as such. Overall, a sound example!
