Luftwaffe unmarked Unqualified Gunner Badge. This badge, along with an unqualified Radioman/Gunner Badge, were introduced in April, 1944, to personnel who were not qualified, but had taken part in at least ten missions (less if wounded in action). It was in the reverse of the colors of the qualified badges, having a black wreath and silver eagle. These two Unqualified Badges are considered very scarce. Low Excellent
Aircraft industry Badge of Merit in Silver for Meritorious Achievement. This was only in a stickpin form, and for civilians, as it was intended for wear on their clothing. It is 25mm high and about 17mm in with. The design is a perched eagle with a "T" crossed by a wolfsangle on its chest, and clutching a white enamel shield with a black swastika. The reverse is marked "Ges. Gesch" (patent Pending). Excellent
Luftwaffe Pilot/Observer Badge of un-marked construction. Wreath gilding has some minor age fading, and eagle's powdered silver finish has some darkening. An honest guaranteed original at a fair price. Very Good
Spanish Commemorative Medal for Russian Service in hollow relief. This strike, unlike the flat German made medal, from my experience, is very scarce. The black enamel of the Iron Cross is intact, and the ribbon, having the national colors of Spain and Germany at either edge, is without issue. At the top is a pin-back gold metal rectangular frame. Obverse has some slight darkening to the eagle, and the reverse has darkening to the high relief chain and Kremlin towers and their background. High Good
An unusual and exceptionally large and heavy solid bronze medal about 2" in diameter and 5mm thick awarded by the National Food Estate Organization for Achievement in Agriculture in Rheinland. According to Angolia, this was awarded cased and without a ribbon. Excellent
WW I Fighting Knife with etched "Weihnachten 1916 II. Batl. Inf. Regt. 147." Blade was very dark and prior to cleaning the etching was obscured. With cleaning, the etching is now mostly visible. Blade has one nick near the cross guard. Scabbard paint 90% and leather attaching loop is missing except for a small piece attached to scabbard. Good.
