Greetings,

I recently just purchased this lovely Kreuzer Emden pin.  I have already had a Kreuzer Karlsruhe pin in my collection and I haven't seen another pin produced like this for any of the other Kreuzer's.   There are (Lapel stick pins) Nadel pins for units like the Tigervorverbände and for the Tirpitz and such, but I haven't seen any other examples of the Kreuzer or other ships in this fashion.   Here are the two examples I have.

Here is the Karlsruhe.  Interesting note, I believe this manufacturer is the same one that made many of the Prague Spanges for the occupation medal.

Best Regards,

Hi Justin,

I used to have a couple of these badges.

I believe they are "Day Badges",they are pre-war and were made for sale to the ships visitors in foreign ports.

 

Cheers,Martin.
