A Medaille für ausgezeichnete Leistungen im technischen Dienst der Luftwaffe im Etui. This Medal for Outstanding Achievements in the Technical branch of the Luftwaffe was intended to reward outstanding technical achievements in the Air Force which could not be awarded with the War Merit Cross or a similar award. It is constructed out of a die stamped zinc base that has been silver washed and lacquered. The round shaped obverse features the left facing bust of Hermann Göring surrounded by “Der Befehlshaber der Luftwaffe Reichsmarschall Göring” (The Commander of the Luftwaffe Reichsmarschall Göring). The reverse displays a 2nd pattern Luftwaffe Eagle emblem surrounded by “Für Ausgezeichnete Leistungen im Technischen Dienst der Luftwaffe” (German - For Exemplary Technical Services in the Luftwaffe). It measures 75mm in diameter. Where it looks worn is where the lacquer is missing. It comes housed in its original issue case. The case is the typical wood and pressed cardboard covered in a black leatherette. Round steel push button and piano hinge. Blue velvet base, pearl velvet top. Measures 2 ¾ inches wide and deep by ¾ of an inch thick. Minor scuffs, beautiful condition. Missing from most Luftwaffe award collections!
