Title Luftwaffe pilot's badge
Nationality German
Period c 1943
Sold

This was the pilot's qualification badge; all air personnel had qualification badges for the different positions in an aircraft. This badge would have been for both bomber and fighter pilots, in fact all pilots, except glider pilots, who had their own badge. This is a typical late war example, zinc with traces of silver-plate finish to the wreath.

There is no maker mark, but it has all original fittings and there is no restoration. It is, however, rather roughly made compared to the earlier pieces, quite typical of late war production.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.
