K008189 COASTAL ARTILLERY UNIFORM BUTTONS "Lot of 16". (Anzug Knopf Gruppe)

BACKGROUND: Although the Kriegsmarine utilized a wide variety of different style and sized buttons on its assorted uniform items the most commonly used uniform buttons were the 25mm, (1") and 20mm, (3/4"),diameter, magnetic sheet metal or alloy type buttons. The standard navy blue and white uniform buttons featured an embossed fouled anchor on a horizontally ribbed background field with a simulated, twisted rope, outer border while the standard uniform button for the field-grey uniforms featured an embossed fouled anchor on a subtly pebbled background field and a raised pebbled outer rim. The buttons for the navy blue and white uniform were generally gilted while those of the field-grey uniforms were field-grey. Administrative personnel were distinguished from other Kriegsmarine personnel by having silver uniform insignia including buttons as opposed to the standard golden yellow insignia. Due to the silver insignia the Administrative personnel were contemptuously referred to as Silberlinge, (Silvered Ones).

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Lot of 16 original 20mm buttons.
