A Fallschirmschützenabzeichen der Luftwaffe by F. W. Assmann & Söhne of Lüdenscheid. The Luftwaffe Paratrooper Badge was awarded to those who had successfully completed the paratrooper training course, consisting of physical and psychological tests along with six qualifying parachute jumps. The two-piece construction badge features a die struck zinc based and gold gilded eagle with a die struck zinc based chemically blackened wreath. The oval shaped obverse depicts a diving Luftwaffe eagle, clutching a swastika within its talons, and is above by a blackened half laurel leaf and berry, half oak leaf and acorn wreath. The reverse is correctly maker marked “A” and displays the correct; soldered on tombak block hinge, soldered on tombak flat wire catch and tombak round wire pin. All of the components remain working well. Nice detail remains! It measures approximately 1 5/8 inches wide by 2 1/8 inches high. A nice piece!
