    CIVIL FLIGHT BADGES

    (J1489) A very nice and so far unidentified Glider Cloth Patch that shows a silver bird within an oakleaf wreath. The patch shows some mothing but is in very nice condition. In the book "NSKK and NSFK", David Littlejohn shows a similar example and says unidentified. Recently acquired from a German house clearance agent, the cross was in amongst a pile of Luftwaffe and NSFK insignia.

    GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

    LUFTWAFFE HONOUR GOBLET

    (K349) An Early Luftwaffe Honour Goblet being stamped 835 silber with a crown and crescent mark as well as an eagle mark and maker marked Joh Wagner und Sohn. The goblet has had a few knocks and bashes and I feel someone may have attempted to scrub the swastika at some time. But this is still intact and visible. The goblet was preseted on the 31/5/41 to an Oberfeldwebel Johannes Lehmann who was also holder of the German Cross in Gold as well as the iron crosses. He is also listed as being with a KG unit. The goblet also comes in a custom made box that was made post war that says who it was presented to etc. A very nice early quality award. Very few of these were originally made in silver.

    LUFTWAFFE PILOTS & PILOT OBSERVER BADGES
    Instituted on 26th March 1936,

    (CS93) A Nice family acquired group of Two Citations, Two Badges and some Photographs. The goruping consists of a nice mid war Pilot's Badge maker marked BSW within a clover leaf. The badge retains virtually 90% of it's original finish. The badge has the usual flaw to the eagle's foot and swastika. Then there is a Black Wound Badge being the second pattern steel type, which retains approximately 85% of it's black painted finish. The badge is unmarked. Then there is the Pilot's Citation, named to a Feldwebel Paul Schmidt, this is dated 3.2.43 and signed by a General of the flyers. The citation is folded in four but is still nice and clean. There is also an Award Covering Letter to Paul Schmidt regarding an injury sustained on the 12.6.1940. This relates to his black wound badge. The letter states his wound badge and citation are sent. Then there are 11 photographs showing Herr Schmidt in his uniform with his younger brother, who was an HJ Member being attached to the Luftwaffe Flak Unit. There is a nice one of Paul Schmidt wearing an officers dagger. A couple of him next to his aircraft. One in his pilot uniform. Etc. Then there is A small size Luftwaffe Photograph Album compiled him . The album consists of 51 photographs, with subjects covered being a tank, a hand glider, firing squad party and various Luftwaffe pilot's uniforms etc etc. In good condition. A nice selection. The group was recently acquired from a German House Agent from the centre of Germany. A lovely grouping. GBP 1050.00 (UK Pounds)

    (S370) A German Luftwaffe Late War Pilot's Badge being the type associated with the Fredrich Linden firm. This badge appears to have been used and worn in service as the eagle has taken a clunk, pushing the swastika in. This doesn't detract at all from the overall look of the badge, it just makes it more unusual in the fact it has been worn and has seen service wear. A lovely looking badge. The badge has nice fretted out wing tips and has a mid war style of wreath with a working hinge and hook. The eagle is held onto the wreath by two flattened rivets. The hinge and hook are soldered to the wreath by what appears to be a gilt braise metal. The hook is the type often found on the F & LL close combat clasps, which is how collectors are linking these badges to this manufacturer. The eagle retains a large percentage of its darkened finish. The wreath still has a nice silver finish and the eagle has a polished silver swastika, although this has tarnished. Priced for clunk GBP 325.00 (UK Pounds)

    LUFTWAFFE OBSERVER BADGES
    Instituted on 26th March 1936

    (MC327) A Cloth Luftwaffe Bullion Observer's Badge being of very nice quality and construction. The badge has been cut from a tunic. The detail has been picked out in black cotton with silver bullion threads worked in, giving very nice detail and definition. Not often encountered these days. Very rare to find nowadays, especially in this superior condition. GBP 495.00 (UK Pounds)

    (R440) A cased Observer's Badge by the well known manufacturer Assmann. This textbook example is of their usual late war high quality that shows an eagle holding a polished swastika on a late war zinc wreath. The eagle is silver oxidised and retains a high percentage of this blackened oxidised finish. The silver wreath though, has dropped much of its silver finish, giving the badge the same overall colour, as can be seen from the scan, apart from the swastika, which still shows it burnished finish, giving a marked attractive contrast to the badge. To the reverse, the badge has a standard Assmann clip, affixed to a circular base plate, soldered to the wreath and a nice block hinge and good quality pin soldered to the top. The badge has a nice pair of flattened rivets holding the eagle to the wreath and the A mark stamped to the reverse of the back of the eagle. Very nice quality to find. The case for the award is a mid to late war example lined in blue paper with a split blue paper hinge, the case has the cut out for the pin and when lifted out you can see "626K.B" embossed to the back of the blue cut out base . The lid has in silver the wording "Beobachterabz" embosed into the lid. The box is opened by a push stud which is magnetic and it also has a magnetic hing. In nice condition the pair GBP 850.00 (UK Pounds)

    GLIDER PILOTS BADGE
    Instituted on 16th December 1940

    (GE5) A nice condition Glider Badge being the type made by Wilhelm Deumer with the solid swastika and as such this example is maker marked to the reverse of the eagle. The award retains approximately 75% of it's original finish with minor wear to the high points of the badge giving a nice contrast to it. The badge is a textbook example of the Deumer style of pin, hinge and hook construction with the base having a solid swastika as previously mentioned and the circular retaining clip to the reverse as well as the broad hinge block. All in all, the award is a nice quality example of Deumer's work. It is quite a scarce badge to acquire.GBP 1250.00 (U K Pounds)

    GLIDER PILOT BADGE BOOK

    Product Code: 12780

    The Glider Pilot Badge is among the rarest of all the qualification badges of the Luftwaffe of the Third Reich. Information about the badge has been almost as scarce as genuine examples of the award itself - until now. Here for the first time is a comprehensive collection of such information. Not only are all of the currently known varieties of the badge itself illustrated and described in clear detail, but also included are an overall history of the glider troops, accounts of glider licenses, award documents, and presentation cases, and a lot more. Author Stijn David has done an excellent job of gathering all of this information together into a fascinating book that belongs on the shelf of anyone who is interested in the history of the German Luftwaffe during World War Two.
