An original pair of badges which would have been worn on the German army pith helmet during operations in north africa. These badges display very well, but unfortunately are missing many of the original pins which were used to mount them on the helmet. Stamped zinc construction. 


The Afrika Korps or German Africa Corps (German: Deutsches Afrikakorps, DAK, pronounced [ˈdɔɪ̯t͡ʃəs ˈaːfʁikaˌkoːɐ̯] (listen)) was the German expeditionary force in Africa during the North African Campaign of World War II. First sent as a holding force to shore up the Italian defense of its African colonies, the formation fought on in Africa, under various appellations, from March 1941 until its surrender in May 1943. The unit's best known commander was Field Marshal Erwin Rommel.
