Original WWII German Luftwaffe (Airforce) Enlisted/NCO Breast Eagle (Hoheitsabzeichen) Certified.
Original WWII German Luftwaffe (Airforce) Enlisted/NCO Breast Eagle (Hoheitsabzeichen) Certified. The Luftwaffe pattern national eagle was originally introduced for wear by Fliegerschaft, (Pilot Base), personnel of the DLV, Deutscher Luftsportsverband, (German Air Sports Association), the clandestine, civilian, forerunner of the Luftwaffe on August 18TH 1934 and was officially adopted for wear by all Luftwaffe personnel on March 1ST 1935. The original first pattern national eagle was utilized until a, slightly modified, second pattern national eagle was introduced in late 1936 or early 1937. Regulations dictated that the national eagle was to be worn on almost all headgear and on the right breast of almost all uniforms with a few minor exceptions. Machine embroidered, second pattern, (Circa 1936/1937-1945), Luftwaffe eagle, clutching a canted swastika in one talon, in silvery/grey rayon threads on a cut-out Luftwaffe blue/grey wool base. Uniform removed eagle in used but fair condition. These all have some loss and moth damage on the gray edge (priced accordingly). From a very old collection. We have several and will pick out the best one. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History.
