Here we have an unmarked Type F Luftwaffe Fallschirmjager Badge by Assmann. The two-piece construction badge features a die struck zinc based and gold gilded eagle with a die struck zinc-alloy based and blackened wreath stamped witha stylized "A" to the reverse. The oval shaped obverse depicts a diving Luftwaffe eagle, clutching a swastika within its talons, and is above by a blackened half laurel leaf and berry, half oak leaf and acorn wreath. The reverse displays the correct; two "pancake" style rivets, the soldered on tombak block (or short barrel) hinge, soldered on sheetmetal hinge, tombak round plate flatwire catch and round wire nickel-silver pin. The distinct Assmann eagle provides wonderful detail! It measures approximately 1 5/8 inches wide by 2 1/8 inches high. See page 84 of Thomas Durante's "The German Luftwaffe and Heer Paratrooper Badges of World War II" reference book. A fine piece!
