Absolutely pristine, gorgeous German Heer Fallshirmjager Badge in its original presentation case. This first version of the Type 2 C. E. Juncker badge is constructed of a cast aluminum silvered eagle with a gilded aluminum wreath, the eagle fixed to the badge with two rivets. It bears a barrel hinge and the proper 'C' type catch. This was the first production of the Type 2 made completely of aluminum by its only known maker. Instituted in 1937, the aluminum version was discontinued that same year. This badge was completely discontinued when the Heer fallschirmjager troops were absorbed/replaced by their Luftwaffe counterparts. The finish to the front of the badge is 98% intact, and any defects are virtually indistinguishable to the naked eye. The badge is sold complete with the original presentation case with gold embossed name of the award, its push-button release and hinge fully intact and operational. 54mm tall, 41mm wide. This example, likely unrivaled on the market, was originally sold to our consignor in 2008 by Wolfe-Hardin and a copy of Stephen Wolfe's letter sent with the badge to the purchaser is included. An exquisite - and very rare badge, in top condition.
