THE GERMAN LUFTWAFFE
PARA BADGE

Instituted on 5th November 1936
Known Makers:
A, B & NL, B.S.W., C E Juncker Berlin SW, G.W.L, G H Osang Dresden, P.M., W Deumer Ludensheid,
(T828) A German Luftwaffe Paratrooper's Badge, in its original Early Case of Issue. The case has the award's designation in gold letters embossed to the lid. The hinge to the back is a magnetic example. It has lost a bit of its paper to this, as you can see from the scan. The push stud works perfectly to reveal the inside, which is of navy blue silk under the lid and plush velvet to hold the badge. The badge is a nice Early example being an unmarked type ascribed to the maker FLL. This example has the H and N scratched to the back. The badge is described in one of the latest books on Luftwaffe and Army Paratrooper badges as an FLL 1st Pattern type. The badge matches the illustrated one on page 216/217 of the book by Thomas M Durante. He describes the badge as the FLL type B.A very nice example, becoming increasingly rare to find on the market nowadays. GBP 1750.00 (UK Pounds)
