Title DLV lapel pin
Nationality German
Period c 1933-36
Sold

This is the badge of the 'civilian gliding club' (Deutscher Luftsport Verband) founded by the Nazis to get round the Versailles Treaty strictures on the existence of any airforce. In 1936, this in turn became the NSFK or Fliegerkorps for short, which shortly afterwards became the Luftwaffe.

It is maker marked 'K. Wurster M. Neukirchen Ges. D.L.V. Gesch.' Its condition is good, except for a small pinprick flaw in the enamel (at 2 o'clock) and, on account of the thinness of the wings, there has been some minor distortion through age to these. However, the EPNS finish is excellent.

It is quite a rare badge and I have been lucky enough to buy two of them from a veteran source.

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