Here we have a Luftwaffe Aluminum Pilot Observer Badge by Assmann! It is constructed out of two pieces of die struck, aluminum that have been gold gilded and silver washed. The obverse features a silvered centrally placed massive swooping Luftwaffe eagle with outstretched wings clutching a mobile swastika in its talons. The eagle is the attached at the wings to a golden half laurel leaf and berry, half oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The reverse correctly displays the double “A” (F.W. Assmann & Sohne Lüdenscheid) maker mark and “D.R.G.M” (Deutsches Reichesgebrauchsmuster) mark. It shows the correct barrel hinge, round wire catch, pin and two rivets. The catch has been pushed in and has left a notch in it. The obverse displays beautiful details throughout the eagle and wreath. See page 54 of Previtera’s Combat Badges of the Third Reich Vol 2 Luftwaffe. A nice aluminum example!
