    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 Very few of these were originally made in silver.

    (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 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.
