A Luftwaffen Fliegerschützen Bordfunker und Bordmechanikerabzeichen by IMME & Sohn of Berlin. An airman could receive the badge after passing a qualification exam and completing a minimum of five missions over enemy territory or two months of training or earlier if wounded in the process of an operational flight. It is a two-piece construction made out of die struck nickel-silver that has been silver washed and chemically blackened. The obverse the badge depicts an open-winged Luftwaffe eagle clutching four lightning bolts in its talons. The eagle is in front of a half laurel leaf and berry half oak leaf and acorn wreath and has a mobile swastika to the very bottom. The reverse of the badge correctly displays the “JMME & Sohn Berlin” maker mark behind the eagle. The reverse also shows; a soldered on barrel hinge, soldered on tombak round wire catch, round wire pin and two rivets. Im going to play it safe here and call the catch a replacement. The badge depicts beautiful details throughout the eagle’s wings, head and wreath! It measures approximately 2 1/8 inches tall by 1 5/8 inches wide. A nice one!
