This is a Beautiful example of a World War II Nazi Heer Panzers Troops Kuban Shield.
The Kuban Shield (German: Armelschild Kuban) was a World War II military decoration of Nazi Germany, awarded to those who fought at the Kuban bridgehead in the Soviet Union from February 1943 until it was abandoned in October 1943. The award was instituted on 21 September 1943.
The shield is designed in a similar fashion to the Crimea Shield and was struck in sheet metal or zinc and treated with a bronzed wash. It features a German eagle with outstretched wings clutching a laurel wreath with a swastika. On each side the wreath are the numbers 19 and 43. Directly below the eagle is written KUBAN in block capital letters. Below this name is a stylized map of the Kuban region, with a line representing the defensive line that the men fought to preserve with the location of the bridgeheads - KRYMSKAJA, LAGUNEN, and NOWOROSSIJSK.
Approximately 2-15/16" in height and 2-1/2" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Plated brass, wool, leather.
To be sewn onto uniform.
This is from a Nazi Germany collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-JST-35-19 LCIEX04/29/20 SCGHX04/28/21
7 (Very Fine): The shield shows some areas of light to medium tarnishing. Wool and textured paper backing are excellent.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
