Superb - and scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) 'Narvik'-campaign-shield being a detailed example as executed in silver-toned metal and that comes in a presumably issued- (albeit never worn- nor tunic-attached-), condition
This is a truly very attractive - and nowadays actually very scarcely encountered! - WH (Heeres) 'Narvik'-campaign-shield being a very detailed example as was executed in (minimally tarnished) bright-silver-toned (and magnetic) metal and that comes in a presumably issued- (albeit - I deem - never worn- nor even tunic-attached-), condition. The (magnetic) shield comes complete with its original (presumably zinc-based) 'back-plate' and field-grey-coloured (smooth) woolen cloth and retains all its four period-mounted prongs in place (which all four of them are present and functional as can be seen on the pictures). The shield shows some normal aging and/or moderate tarnish caused by years of storage but has nevertheless retained extraordinary detail. It retains most of its bright-silver-toned finish and retains its (brownish-toned) backing-paper that even shows a pencilled price (that reads '2.45' as can be seen on the pictures). The shield was with certainty never cleaned nor polished and comes as recently found at a private-German-household. Simply a very attractive - and naturally 100% garuanteed original and - I deem - fairly early-war-period! - 'Heeres'-pattern 'Narvik'-campaign-shield that is priced according to its unmistaken scarcity and/or desirability!
