A Segelflugzeugführerabzeichen! The Glider Pilot Badge would be issued to soldiers and officials of the Luftwaffe after they completed their glider training and it entitled the owner to operate a glider out of a dedicated airport area. It is constructed out of a two-piece die struck zinc base that has been silver washed and black burnished. The obverse features a soaring eagle with outstretched wings above an oak leaf wreath that has a mobile swastika to the bottom. The full back reverse features a crimped/soldered on ball hinge a crimped/soldered on round wire catch a steel round wire pin and two flattened tombak rivets. This one is beautifully detailed to the eagle and wreath! The silver finish is lost to time. It measures approximately 2 1/16 inches wide by 2 1/4 inches tall. A rare award!
