I have always been partial to the Junker style. That Eagles head is, in my opinion, much better cast and more daunting.

Nice trio.

Jeannot,

If one can only possess three U-Boat badges, they should be the three that you have. Congrats on a very nice colection!

Best Regards,

Erik

I agree, they are all nice but for me the first badge on the left really takes the prize; cutout swastika, detailed eagle, and a crisp wreath!

Nice badge.

A later unmarked example with the flat-wire catch and a little worn, but still a good addition to your collection.

If i collected U-Boat badges,a tombak Meybauer would be on my list.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath.

    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
