Maker - Juncker

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

A nice example of a wartime Close Combat Clasp by the well known C.E. Juncker firm. This is a textbook 1.13.1 variant as shown in the Close Combat Clasp book, with typical mis-spelled maker mark "C.F. Juncker". The barrel hinge and flat-wire catch are correctly recessed into the reverse and neatly soldered in the normal fashion. The clasp has the original blackened backplate, and is characteristically non-magnetic, a unique feature only to be found with Juncker Close Combat Clasps. A nicely example with good amount of original bronze finish remaining. 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- Josef Feix & Sohne - JFS

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

A nice example of a wartime 2nd Pattern Close Combat Clasp by JFS. This is a textbook 1.12.2 variant as shown in the Close Combat Clasp book, with typical 4-tab crimping around the hinge. The clasp has the original blackened backplate, and is characteristically magnetic along with the hinge, pin and catch. The reverse of the clasp is also appropriately marked with the firm's signature maker mark "JFS" in raised relief next to the hinge and designer's mark adjacent to the catch. A nicely worn example. The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award. Size, weight and dimensions are correct to known examples.

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 eagle was appropriately darkened and was additionally fmished with a protective lacquer that has aged and toned over the years giving it a greenish! yellow appearance. The reverse hardware setup is typical "FLL" production, with a "lazy" block hinge lying on its side, and round-wire catch 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 Ofthe eagle. The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award.

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 relatively early example and an uncommon variant, with the wreath and eagle being made from Brass with a thick Silver plating. The badge is nicely worn, revealing the Brass base metal under the silver fmish. As is typical with this maker, the eagle is darkened with an artificial oxidation layer, while the wreath has a frosted silver finish. The reverse hardware setup is also typical, with a "lazy" block hinge lying on its side, and question-mark shaped catch. The large, brass rivets are un-messed with and classic "FLL"-attributed production. A nicely worn example by this maker. The described and pictured piece is an original example of this award.

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.

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.

Maker- Friedrich Linden, Ludenscheid - FLL

COA From Mr. Thomas M. Durante:

Unmarked Luftwaffe Paratrooper badge, but commonly attributed to the Lüdenscheidbased firm of Friedrich Linden. A textbook example of a Type "C" badge as shown in the Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge book, with a 1st Pattern eagle and 2nd Pattern wreath. Both the wreath and eagle are made from zinc, including the rivets which are characteristically large and bulbous; a signature feature of this maker's Luftwaffe badges. The reverse hardware setup is also typical, with a "lazy" block hinge lying on its side, and thick-wire catch sitting on an oval base plate. The wreath's dark finish is almost completely intact, with minimal wear to the high points. The eagle's gold finish is also mostly intact, but has dulled over time. 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.

This piece is interesting on several levels.  

First the piece itself was featured in Frederick Adolphus's "Militaria" magazine (Jan-Feb 2010).  The the subject of the article was about converted Waffenrock uniforms and this piece was one of the examples he chose to feature in the magazine article.  This piece comes with the complete magazine issue as well as a nice letter of thanks from Mr. Adolphus thanking me for providing photos to assist with his article.

The 2nd thing that is really interesting about this piece is the unit in which the owner of this piece served.  This piece is well marked and the owner of this piece was in the 71st Infantry Regiment.  This was a motorized infantry regiment that was a component of the 29th motorized infantry division.  It served in all of the famous campaigns from 1939 thru 1943 when it was finally destroyed at Stalingrad.  Being a motorized infantry division it served with all of the panzer/blitzkrieg thrusts in Poland and France.  In Russia it served with Army Group Center at Minsk, Smolensk and finally Guardian's drive on Tula.  It eventually ended up heading south in mid-1942 and was surrounded with the rest of the 6th Army in the Stalingrad pocket where it was destroyed in January of 1943.
