GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE PARATROOPER BADGE BY C.E.JUNCKER.
A most superb condition Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge by the renowned maker C.E.Juncker of Berlin. The award retains virtually all of its original finish, excellent gilt to the diving eagle with some light traces of frosted highlights to the edge of the wings. All of the dark grey patinated chemically finished oak and laurel leaf wreath is superb with a good deep strike showing all of the oak and laurel leaves clearly. On the reverse side all of the gilt remaining to the eagle clearly stamped ‘C.E.Juncker, Berlin’ and the majority of the same chemically patinated finish visible. Thick needle pin, which has been slightly bent to make the badge a snugger fit on the uniform cloth. Slight distortion to the retaining hook. This is an issued and worn badge but thankfully in excellent condition.
