WWII German Kriegsmarine Auxiliary Cruiser War Badge by Friedrich Orth- This unique badge was instituted on 24 April 1941 by order of Grand Admiral Erich Raeder, with the design by Ernst Peekhaus. This zinc example is missing a vast majority of the finish, with very minor wear. There is a block hinge, needle pin and round wire catch. The initials "f.o." are seen above the catch indicating this was produced by Friendrich Orth. Good condition overall!
