Krim Shield

Post by Sgt Sgt Cheshires » 06 Dec 2020 13:04

Hi
Can anyone tell me if this Krim Shield is real or repro?
I don’t have any knowledge regarding Third Reich shield awards, so any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Better photos will be needed, if possible, of the wreath and eagle's head

That example it's the most accurate I've found.
Basis on this, an original shield.

Herr von thoma,

sorry, I am not sure about the origin of the "Krimschild" in your posted picture ?

Krimschild: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krimschild

Unfortunately, I have no better photos of an original, but we young collectors bought the first "Krimschilde" in the 1970s, at german flea markets for about 20.- german Marks per piece back then.
Not always to be found even then, but an expert at that time told me, to always pay attention to the back, and also to the fabric of the uniforms of that time, this is, what I remember...

I would buy the "Krimschild" today only from a private estate, if at all...
I would not trust a militaria dealer, no matter how well known.

Thanks Herr von thoma,

another website/militaria dealer, I would never trust.

I am probably much too critical, but my decades of experience speak for themselves... :?

Sometimes Hans, I am concerned, seeing your
negative and rough comments on the Forum.

"Krimschild" is the term, the rest is pure nonsense! :roll:

And it makes no sense, to talk to so-called "collectors", who are not even able to write the correct german term
in an internet forum, more questions?

If my words were too harsh, I'm sorry, that was not my intention.

But this is about german "militaria" objects, and then we all should please use the original designations from that time.
Any other designation only causes confusion, and is likewise of little help in a further search on the Internet, etc.

But as always, just my personal opinion, nothing more.
