Mayer, Schickle, Zimmermann or what?


Recommended Posts

Attached are a couple photos of a u-boat badge I've owned for many years. The obverse of the badge shows all of the characteristics of a Mayer, Schickle or Zimmermann badge however the reverse hardware matches none of those shown in Gordon's book.

The badge is Tombak with a silver coloured pin and has a wire catch. The end of the deck gun barrel has gone missing but otherwise it is an extremely high quality badge.

Can anyone confirm who the maker of this badge likely is?

Thanks

Richard

Richard,

IMO the badge you have posted is a Mayer.The Zimmermann should have four segmented arms to the swastika.If the reverse hardware is not pictured in Gordon's book then i can only presume that it is a Mayer variant.
