(L856) A Very Rare example of a contemporary sample for the Luftwaffe Flak Badge. The badge is an oval wreath with a separately applied eagle to the top and then a flak gun has been mounted in the middle. This has some extra additions to it as can be seen from the scan. The flak badge wreath is of hollow construction and has two vent holes to it. I have seen a similar example in a drawing in the book "Auszeichnunged Des Deutschen Reiches 1936-1945" by Kurt G. Klietmann on page 163, where they discuss different designs that were put forward, finally settling for one we all know. It is my belief that this was one of the trial samples made up.
