Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger Badge by Steinhauer & L
An extremely fine example of the Luftwaffe Fallschirmjager Badge, awarded on completion of training and worn on the left breast pocket.
This superb example by Steinhauer und Luck shows no manufacture’s name but exhibits the exact characteristics of that manufacturer.
The grey/black wreath is of high relief Feinzink whilst the swooping eagle is a beautiful gilded Tombak. Overall condition is near excellent with minor wear to the finish on the high points, most likely just from handling.
Worn by Luftwaffe Airborne Troops and by Waffen SS Parachute Formations which came into being during the war, it would be very difficult to upgrade this example.
