GERMAN WWII LUFTWAFFE GLIDER PILOT’S BADGE BY JUNCKER.
A very rare service worn Glider Pilot’s Badge by C.E.Juncker, Berlin. Early construction piece, marked ‘C.E.Juncker, Berlin SW’ to the reverse side and some faintness to the stamping to the two last fonts of the name ‘Juncker’. Excellent depth of detail to the laurel leaf wreath. Standard cut out swastika. Thick needle pin. Typical Juncker hinge and hook with two small domed rivets. Identical in construction to the excellent example shown on page 359 of Combat Badges of the Third Reich by Stephen Thomas Previtera, also study the example shown on pages 365 where below the Berlin SW there appears to be other stampings, which is an identical feature of this badge offered.
