Very attractive - and actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'backing'
This is a truly attractive - and in this presumably issued albeit (I deem) never worn- nor used condition actually scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres ie. Waffen-SS) so-called: 'Kuban'-campaign-shield that comes mounted onto its original, field-grey-coloured- and/or woolen-based 'backing' and that comes in an overall very nice- (ie. I deem issued albeit never used nor once tunic-attached-) condition. The - highly detailed and/or pronounced! - shield comes naturally complete with its original metal-based 'back-plate' and still retains all four of its original prongs (being attached to the centre shield as more often encountered with original 'Kuban'-campaign-shields as can be seen on the pictures). The piece sill retains its beige-coloured- and paper-based 'backing-cover' but also shows an additional piece of paper which is 'left-over' of having been once glued into an album or alike (as can be seen on the pictures). This example has stunning detail and truly retains all of its somewhat 'glossy appearance' and retains all (!) of its 'Brennlack'-type surface (showing some darkened tarnish) and has never been cleaned nor polished: it does show some minimal staining as is visible on the pictures). It should, however, be noted that these (original) 'Kuban'-campaign-shields are a bit underestimated in value and rarity: genuine - and nicely preserved! - examples of the 'Kuban'-shield are actually not that easily encountered. I deem that this very attractive example is accordingly priced!
