Minesweeper Badge Identification


Recommended Posts

I believe that this zinc minesweeper badge is OK, so does anyone have a clue who the maker might have been? I've had it kicking around for many years and it is well made.

Hi Richard,

How do you come up with these?rolleyes.gif

Seems like some of the flashing around the water plume and the eagle head was left behind, making it difficult to identify it's "fingerprints" so one can't be sure, but judging by the hardware, obverse design and exterior outlines, I'd hazard a guess it was another Juncker mis-strike sort of like that tombak one you had which was discussed at: http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=41022

Perhaps a bit of a quality control problem at Juncker's when distracted by the bombing?

Best regards,

---Norm

Thanks for the reply Norm. Just trying to someday have a MS fleet to rival yours.:D

Richard

I'll never have a real fleet since I've limited myself to the very narrow range of unmarked tombak minesweepers! For me it's more fun to study the badges, their historical context and manufacture, and discuss them, than to actually amass them in quantity. But it's sure nice to see other people's collections! laugh.gif

Cheers.
