A Luftwaffe Frontflug-Spange für Jäger in Gold. The Short Range Day Fighter Clasp in Gold was instituted January 30th 1940 and awarded for 110 combat missions. It is constructed out of two pieces of die struck tombak / nickel-silver that has been gold gilded / blackened. The obverse depicts a centrally placed blackened upward pointing ‘flying arrow’ that is surrounded by a laurel leaf and berry wreath that is tied together at the bottom with a stagnant swastika and is flanked by four round cut outs and two nine piece oak leaf clusters. The semi-full back reverse shows a recessed lathed portion with an off center rivet, a soldered on tombak round wire catch, soldered on tombak barrel hinge and sturdy tapered tombak pin. It displays wonderful detail throughout and the gilded highlights are superb! It measures approximately 3 inches wide by 1 inch tall. A beautiful piece!
