A beautiful personalized Flugzeugführerabzeichen by Berg & Nolte Lüdenscheid! The Luftwaffe pilot badge was awarded upon completing flight training and received their license. It is constructed out of two pieces of die struck nickel-silver / tombak based that has been black burnished and silver plated. The obverse features a blackened 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 half laurel leaf and berry, half oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The reverse is correctly maker marked "B&N L" (Berg & Nolte Lüdenscheid). The reverse also shows soldered on barrel hinge, soldered on round wire catch, round wire pin and two rivets. The obverse displays good details throughout the eagle and wreath. It measures approximately 2 1/2 inches wide by 2 1/8 inches tall. This one has some pitting the worse of which is to the reverse, likely the result of some uncleaned verdigris at some point.
