A textbook, 3rd pattern Army Paratrooper by C.E. Juncker! The badge features a two-piece, zinc based, gold gilded wreath and silver washed eagle. The obverse depicts a centrally placed diving Heer eagle which is surrounded by an oak leaf wreath and is below another Heer eagle that is holding a swastika within its talons. The reverse has the correct; brass rivets, barrel hinge, flatwire round plate catch that has been repaired, (you would never know if I didn’t tell you) and magnetic pin! The silver eagle provides nice detail and retains great silver wash that contrasts the gold wreath quite nicely. The details to the eye, wings and wreath are great! See page 458 of Durante’s Paratrooper Badge reference. Much rarer than Luftwaffe paratrooper badges!
