Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge (Fallschirmschützenabzeichen). The Paratrooper’s qualification badge was instituted by 'Hermann Göring' on 5 November 1936 for award to Luftwaffe personnel who had written the required tests and completed six parachute jumps. This badge is a nice mid- to late-war zinc example. The badge is nicely maker marked with the logo of the 'Assmann' company from Lüdenscheid. The badge still retains almost all of its original finish and is showing very nice & pronounced detail overall. The badge has naturally a functional pin & catch construction. Nice original Paratrooper's Badge in very good, near mint, condition!
