Three Navy Badges Recovered from Zimmermann Factory

Coastal Artillery War Badge; 2 Destroyer War Badge, zinc first strikes. Footnote: Zimmermann was a well known German manufacturer of a great variety of awards, German as well as International, that was destroyed in an allied bombing raid in the early 1940's on Pforzheim, Germany. Sometime during the 1990's, during construction on the former factory site, a quantity of medals was discovered (about 50 kilos) and bought by eMedals. Some were in good condition, but most of the pieces exhibited fire damage, or were rusted. Hundreds of pieces were partially finished, and some items were just medal parts, as one would expect to be found in the factory.
