Kriegsmarine insignia/patches

Recommended Posts

This came out of a family where the son served in Vietnam and the father in Europe, so I assume the father brought them home.

 

There's over 60 pieces and I don't know if they are originals.

They are real.

 

I don’t think they fake them.

Nice group of original WWII German Kriegsmarine rates.

 

Are they commonplace?

They do...for reenactors.

Many are. As stated, slow to move and not worth a lot individually. Some rates are rarer and worth a fair amount. Can't speak on which, though, I just recall seeing a few labeled in the past as tough to find. Diver rates, I think, are sought after

very nice rates - maybe post them on the German Helmet Walhalla site as I'm pretty sure they can help you

Besides these Navy patches he also brought back a book of color photos and insignia chart for the Reichsmarine, which became the Kriegsmarine in 1935:
