Your entered maximum bid will not be disclosed to the seller or other auction participants at any point.

If no other participant places a bid, you win that auction lot for $101 dollars.

If another auction participant places a bid of $110 dollars, the system will subsequently place a bid of $111 dollars on your behalf. The system will continue to bid in $1.00 dollar increments until your maximum bid of $120 dollars is exceeded.

If another auction participant places a bid for $125 dollars, the auction lot price will display $121 dollars having exceeded your previously submitted maximum bid by $1.00 dollar.

A Krim Shield Document & Cloth E-Boat Badge to KC Recipient Kommandant Kurt Fimmen

This is a very fine set consisting of 1) a very fine Krimshield award document “Besitzzeugnis” presented to Kapitänleutnant/Captain Leutnant Kurt Fimmen of the 1st Schnellbootsflottille, dated March 1943, with a stamp of the national seal and a facsimile of the Generalfeldmarschall in blue ink. 207 mm x 144 mm, and 2) a rare cloth version E-Boat badge; constructed of yellow and white machine embroidery on a black rayon backer; with some remnants of paper remaining on the reverse; measuring 80 mm x 70 mm; uniform removed. The award document is extremely well preserved with only a very minor nick on the bottom left corner of the document. The E-Boat badge is also well preserved, but with obvious signs of wear, with soiling on the badge.

Footnote: Hermann Erich Kurt Fimmen was born on May 4th, 1911 in Wittenberge/Westprignitz, with a love for water from his early childhood. In his teens he joined a private Cadet organisation, and later the Kriegsmarine. He quickly rose through the ranks, starting as Fähnrich zur See in 1935, rising up to Korvettenkapitän in 1944. He was awarded several decorations, including an Iron Cross 1939 (First and Second Class) and Knight's Cross for his exceptional bravery and performance under enemy fire. He was captured on May 9th, 1945. Further records do not exist, but he died May 6th, 2001. Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurt_Fimmen for more details.
