Jeweller modified Luftwaffe Flak Badge by C.E. Juncker

Please note this item is no longer available and you were redirected to our Archives.

Here we have an early J2 Flak-Kampfabzeichen der Luftwaffe by C.E. Juncker, Berlin. The hardware on the reverse catch has been replaced. The catch has a locking mechanism added so the pin will not open accidentally. There is also a loop added to the base of the barrel. Why, when and who I do not know but given the quality and the extra loop I believe this to be period work. The Luftwaffe Flak Badge was awarded to those who had participated in 3 air defense actions (with a registered kill) or 5 air defense actions (regardless of a kill) or to the battery commander if half of their troops had been awarded the badge. It is constructed out of a two-piece die struck nickel silver base that has been brennlack silver washed and covered in a dark lacquer. The obverse depicts an anti-aircraft gun that is surrounded by a laurel leaf wreath and is below/behind a Luftwaffe eagle, clutching a swastika in one of its talons. The full back reverse of the badge displays what may look like casting bubbles but they are a result of the J1 wreath die deterioration. It measures approximately 2 ½ inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. See pages 146-149 of Marc Garlasco's "The Flak Badge". An interesting addition to your collection.
