A Minty early Flak-Kampfabzeichen der Luftwaffe by Adolf Scholze of Grünwald a. N. 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 silver washed, chemically blackened and brennlack coated. 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 reverse of the badge correctly displays; the crimped on tombak ball hinge, crimped on flat wire catch and round wire pin. All of the components are in well working condition! it has the distinctive eagle and die flaw. It measures approximately 2 ½ inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. See pages 230 of Marc Garlasco’s “The Flak Badge”. Beautiful and early!
