ARTIFACT: This is a Nice Example of a World War II Nazi Army(Heer) Krim Sleeve Shield. 

The shield has a salty look and was probably removed from a uniform. The Krim shield was awarded to wounded German soldiers who served at least three months and participated in one major battle in the Crimea between September 1941 and July 1942.

The Wehrmacht's Army Group South advanced through the Crimean peninsula between the Autumn of 1941 and Summer of 1942. To commemorate the hostilities that ended with the German capture of Sevastopol on 4 July 1942 the Crimea Shield was created for all members of the armed forces under area commander Field Marshal Erich von Manstein.

The shield is headed by the German eagle clutching a laurel wreath surrounding a swastika. Flanking the eagle are the dates 1941 and 1942, which represent the start and end dates of the campaign. This sits on the backdrop of the Crimean peninsula, where the fighting took place, which has the word KRIM stamped across it.
