Cased 'Fliegerschützenabzeichen mit Blitzbündel'


 Cased Luftwaffe 'Fliegerschützenabzeichen mit Blitzbündel' (Air Gunner Badge with Lightning). The Air Gunner Badge was introduced by 'Hermann Göring' on 26 March 1936 for award to radio operators, air gunners and mechanics who had met the required criteria. The Wireless Operator’s/Air Gunner’s badge was awarded on an individual basis and the main criteria for bestowal of the award was the completion of five operational flights over enemy territory or a minimum of two months active service. This is a very nice early tombac (Buntmetall) example in only slightly used condition. The badge has naturally a functional pin & catch construction. The badge shows great detail and the badge still retains almost all of its original finish. The badge is nicely maker marked by the company 'C.E. Juncker' in Berlin SW, this is a so-called type J3. The case is in good condition with some normal usage to the corners, on top of the case is stenciled in gilt print the script: "Luftwaffen Fliegerschützen Abzeichen". Great and hard to find original cased badge in top condition!
