THE LUFTWAFFE GROUND COMBAT BADGES

Was Instituted on 31 March 1942
Known Makers : GB (Soldered Eagle) G H Osang (1 Rivet type) GWL (2 Rivets) MuK5, RK, (3 Rivet)

(CS1505) A Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge being the type that would have had an over eagle riveted to it, but this has been removed. The hook and hinge fittings are intact. The hook is the type used on FLL awards, amongst others. The badge is a nice slim lightweight type, with a silver paint finish to the wreath and parts of the eagle and oxidisation to the centre clouds etc. A nice example of a mid to late war badge. GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1584) A nice example of a Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge being the type that was originally manufactured with a brass over eagle. This has been either removed or not applied, which was standard with the war restrictions on good quality metal being applied. The award other than that, has toned over the years to a reasonable grey colour, still giving contrast to the clouds. Becoming harder to find, these badges were awarded to the Luftwaffe who were engaged in ground combat duties like their army counterpart members. GBP 185.00 (UK Pounds)

(V122) A nice scarce issue German Luftwaffe Ground Combat badge by the maker GWL. The award is unique in the fact that this eagle is attached by two rivets to the badge and has a cut out swastika. The badge also has the feature of a cast in hinge and hook as often found on GWL marked badges. The badge is in vgc although the silver finish has toned over the years, to a slate grey of standard zinc.. This example has been used and worn in service and the wing tips have been bent around the badge A nice scarce badge to acquire for the ground combat badge collectors being one of the hardest makers to find. GBP 375.00 (U K POUNDS)
