(MC680) A Scarce example of a one piece Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge in its Paper Packet of Issue. The badge retains most of its original blue painted finish to the clouds, with the eagle turning a grey/blue colour. The badge has a polished swastika. To the reverse. It has a cast in hinge and hook, with a steel pin affixed and finally it comes in its named paper packet, with manufacturer's details, printed in black to the reverse. The paper packet has been ripped, which is often the case, but it is complete. Very scarce to find. Priced for condition, packet as well as badge. GBP 375.00(UK Pounds)

(S47) A Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge being the later war type dating from the 1944/45 period. This example is the first I have seen where they have put the rivet in and stippled it to match the feathers. This is the type that was war economy, where the early war examples had a bronze brass over eagle held by a single rivet attached to the badge. The badge therefore now, is of one piece construction with a separately applied hinge and hook and large dome rivet to the reverse. The badge is in very good condition and was given to the replacement Luftwaffe Army who did Army combat duties and as such, they got the badge for the same criteria as the Army counterparts. The badge is un marked but it has been put forward that they are made by C E Juncker. Becoming hard to find GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)
