Hi Justin,

 

Two Uboat related Mützenbänder in a nicely worn condition.

 

I like the worn ones above mint condition.

 

Thank you for showing them on the forum.

 

Best regards

I agree with you Eric JB.  I like a bit of wear to a Mützenband. 

I also have a soft spot for the metalfaden or metal thread tallies as well.  There is more character with them.  They show their age and character; they are definitely higher maintenance and require much more delicate handling than their cellon or Baumwool versions, but it is worth it, to me at least for the character. 
Also, it truly establishes a provenance of the age of the tally as metalfaden versions were used so much earlier on during Reichsmarine/ early KM days. 

However,
I would bend my rules and accept a lovely Cotton Zerstörer Anton Schmitt.  To my knowledge, these were only produced in baumwool. My last tally left to allow me to complete the entire Zerstörer fleet.

Regards,

JustinG

Hi Justin,

 

Indeed, I can only second that.

 

Best regards

I have acquired another extremely rare tally.  I wasn't sure of it's existence:  I have currently the 1. Schnellbootshalbflottille.1, the 1. Schnellbootsflottille.1, the 2.Schnellbootsflottille 2. and the Schnellbootsbeglietschiff Tanga.

I am still hunting for the Unterseebootsbeglietschiff Tsingtau. 

However, I discovered that there was a pre-tally produced pre-Schnellboot designation.  UZ(s)  this standing for Unterseeboot Zerstörer (S) for schnell.   I was totally unaware these pre-term schellboot tallies existed.   I am very happy to be adding this and will send you photos of the tally one it arrives.  The tally is  "UZ(s) Halbflottille".

I am also upgrading my Artillerieschulschiff Bremse tally, I figure, a nice wappen needs a nice crisp metallfaden version.  (Anything else would be uncivilized)  :)

Thanks,

JustinG

So I edited the watermark out as it is now confirmed on its way over.  Can you guess who the seller was?  :confused::smile:

Here is my "UZ(S) halbflottille" :)
