WW2 LATE WAR LUFTWAFFE PARATROOPER BADGE BY ASSMANN. Text book example as documented on pages 97-99 of the fine reference book "The German Luftwaffe & Heer Paratrooper Badges" by Durante (2010). Very late war manufacture in zinc base metal, yet retaining the famous "Assman" quality. None of the silvered finish now remains to the die cast wreath, nor the gilded finish to the eagle and swastika. The clear sharp detail to the features, is outstanding for a zinc badge. Well marked to the reverse with both "A" and "L/64". Functional retaining pin. A sort after variant. Grade II- (P)
