Original German WWII Combined Pilot Observer Badge with Replica Case

Regular price $395.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a genuine Combined Pilot Observer Badge (Gemeinsames Flugzeugführer- u. Beobachterabzeichen)  in Tombac with replica presentation case. Sadly the badge was painted post war, we decided not strip it for fear of damaging the medal further.

The joint pilot and observer badge was created on January 19, 1935 by Hermann Göring in his capacity as Reich Minister of Aviation as a successor to the pilot badge. The prerequisite for the awarding of the Joint Pilot and Observer Badge was the awarding of the pilot or observer badge and the prerequisites for both badges. By decree of July 31, 1944, it was decided that at least one year had passed between the award of the pilot or observer badge and the Joint Pilot and Observer badge would be awarded.

The badge is made of silver plated Tombak or fine zinc. It is an oval badge, whose wreath is gilded and made of oak (right) and laurel leaves (left). On the wreath, the silver sovereign badge of the Luftwaffe of the second form is launched. The back of the otherwise broken badge shows a perpendicular soldered needle with hooks. The award was worn as a badge on the left chest below, if it was awarded, Iron Cross I Class. Embroidered versions of this badge were allowed for the pilot's kit.
