Cased Luftwaffe Reconnaissance Clasp in Gold

A Frontflugspange Für Aufklärer, Seenotflieger-Verbände und Wetter-Erkundungs Staffeln in Gold im Etui by C.E. Juncker of Berlin. Instituted January 30th 1941, the Clasp for Reconnaissance, Air/Sea Rescue and Meteorological Squadrons in Gold was awarded for specialized squadrons upon the completion of 110 combat missions. It is constructed out of two pieces of die struck tombak / nickel-silver that has been gold gilded / chemically blackened and covered in a protective lacquer coating. The obverse depicts a centrally placed blackened eagle head 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 triangular cut outs and two nine piece oak leaf clusters. The full back reverse shows an off center rivet, a soldered on tombak round wire catch, soldered on tombak barrel hinge and sturdy tombak pin. It displays wonderful detail throughout, the blackened eagle head is a perfect contrast to the sparkling gilded highlights! It measures approximately 3 inches wide by 1 inch tall. The award comes housed in its appropriate case. The case is constructed out of wood and pressed cardboard that is covered in a blue simulated grained leather covering. The top reads, in gold foil Gothic style script: “Frontflugspange für Aufklärer gold”. The piano hinge and press button continue to work well. The odd scuff. The case measures approximately 3 ½ inches wide by 1 5/8 inches deep by 7/8 of an inch thick. It is in wonderful condition with only minimal wear. A gorgeous assembly you are sure to be happy with!
