Cased LW Pilots Badge - 'Juncker J1'

Description

This is a stunning original cased WH (Luftwaffe) 'Flugzeugführerabzeichen' (Pilots Badge). The Pilot's badge was originally introduced in january 1935 as an DLV (Deutsche Luftsport Verband) award, the Luftwaffe officially adopted the award on 26 march 1936 by order of 'Hermann Göring'. The badge was awarded to Luftwaffe personnel who completed the theory and training and achieved their military pilot’s licence. This badge is a nice early war example made of tombac (Buntmetall), this is an early so-called 'J1' being the first type having a detailed thin wreath and eagle. The badge is nicely maker marked by the company of 'C.E. Juncker' in Berlin SW. The badge shows very nice & pronounced detail overall and is just showing some age patina. The badge has naturally a functional pin & catch construction, the catch however has bent and is out of shape. The badge comes in it's matching early type cloth covered case as found together. Desirable original early pilot's badge!
