Demjansk Shield

Condition: Fair

SKU: JW1536 Category: Tags , , ,


Product Description: A Demjansk Shield from a recent veteran family purchase. This shield has seen better days, but at least the backplate is still with the award. Unfortunately, all but one prong is broken off the back of this shield. This example of the Demjansk Shield, like most examples of this shield, is magnetic. The backplate is also magnetic and plated. The shield retains none of its original finish, but fortunately no corrosion or rust has set in to destroy the beautiful details of the shields design. It would make a nice filler in a collection looking to add a representation without forking out a bunch of money. A recent find of badges in Germany points to the possibility of this maker being “GWL” or Gebrüder Wegerhoff, Ludenscheid. However, this recent find does not provide enough proof to definitively call the maker of this Demjansk Shield design yet.
