Maker- Friedrich Linden, Ludenscheid - FLL

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

Unmarked Luftwaffe Pilot/Observer badge, but commonly attributed to the Lüdenscheid-based firm of Friedrich Linden. A mid-wartime example, with the wreath and eagle being made from Zinc. The wreath's gold brennlack finish is largely intact, as well as the silver finish to the eagle. The reverse hardware setup is typical "FLL" production for this timeframe, with a standing block hinge with large-headed hinge-pin. The round wire catch is soldered directly to the zinc wreath; an uncommon feature to find with zinc-based badges but a common production technique attributed to the Friedrich Linden firm. The large, bulbous rivets are also typical of this maker, and appropriately made from zinc to match the base metal of the eagle. Most importantly, they are the correct shape and completely un-messed with. A very nice example that has survived the test of time well. The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award. Size, weight and dimensions are correct to known examples. This documents a lifetime guarantee on the above details and is accurate based on the information available to date.

Maker- Friedrich Linden, Ludenscheid - FLL

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

Unmarked Luftwaffe Pilot badge, but commonly attributed to the Ludenscheid-based firm of Friedrich Linden. A mid-to-late war example, with the wreath and eagle being made from Zinc.

The large, bulbous rivets are also typical of this maker, and appropriately made from zinc to match the base metal Ofthe eagle. The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award.

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

Unmarked Luftwaffe Pilot badge, but commonly attributed to the Ludenscheid-based firm of Friedrich Linden.

The reverse hardware setup is also typical, with a "lazy" block hinge lying on its side, and question-mark shaped catch.

Maker- Berg & Nolte (B&N L)

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

Luftwaffe Pilot Badge by the Berg & Nolte firm of Ludenscheid. A textbook, early example by this maker with a Nickel Silver wreath and Silver-plated Brass eagle. As is typical with this maker, the eagle is darkened with an artificial oxidation layer, while the wreath has a frosted silver finish. The yellowish/red discoloration on the wreath is the result of aging of the clear protective lacquer that B&NL applied to its badges, and is a feature commonly seen specifically on Luftwaffe badges by this firm. The reverse hardware setup and rivets are also typical of this maker, however the catch has been replaced. Berg & Nolte's maker mark is included on the reverse of the eagle in the normal fashion. ' The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award. Size, weight and dimensions are correct to known examples.

Observer Badge

# 4077

Maker- F. W. Assmann

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

Luftwaffe Observer Badge by the Assmann & Söhne, Lüdenscheid. A textbook mid-tolate wartime example by this maker with an eagle and wreath made from zinc. The reverse hardware setup is typical of Assmann's later-war, zinc-based production with flattened, "pancake" rivets, small barrel hinge and flat wire catch sitting on a round base plate. The reverse of the eagle harbor's Assmann's characteristic "flat-footed" maker mark. The eagle still retains much of its darkened finish, but appears chalky, typical of later-war "economy" finishes by this maker. The wreath's silver finish has largely dissipated despite the protective lacquer, only remaining on the non-zinc parts of the reverse such as the hinge, pin and catch. A relatively rare badge to find compared with early, nickel-silver Assmann Observers. The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award. Size, weight and dimensions are correct to known examples. This documents a lifetime guarantee on the above details and is accurate based on the information available to date.

Maker- Wilhelm Deumer

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

Textbook Luftwaffe Radio Operator/Airgunner badge, by the well known Lüdenscheidbased firm of Wilhelm Deumer. A representative mid-to-late war example, the wreath and eagle are both made from zinc, including the rivets which are correctly ovalshaped; characteristic of Deumer's later-war production. The reverse hardware setup is also typical, with a slender block hinge sitting on an oval base plate and thick-wire catch on a circular base plate. The pin, with its flattened spine is also a signature of "Deumer" production. The reverse of the eagle carries the correct, wartime Deumer maker mark. All in all, a nice unmessed with original with nice layer of patina and honest wear. The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award. Size, weight and dimensions are correct to known examples. This documents a lifetime guarantee on the above details and is accurate based on the information available to date.

Very good Luftwaffe Ground Combat Badge. Quite a bit of the original finish and paint remain. The detail is somewhat worn but still extremely nice. Hinge and clip are still in good working order.
