CASED LUFTWAFFE PILOTS BADGE BY JUNCKER, EARLY QUALITY EXAMPLE.
A superb very high quality example which still retains much original factory bluing to the eagle and silver frosting to the wreath. The reverse side features pin and hook and makers details, C.E.Juncker Berlin SW and which is probably the most desirable maker to obtain for Luftwaffe awards. The blue leatherette issue box is in fine condition showing light age wear with award details to the lid, the box is actually for the considerably rearer pilots observes badge but i have priced it at the cost of a pilots box so it is actually a bit of a bargain especially if you have a pilot observers badge.This rare cased pilots badge was purchased from a contact in the antique trade along with the Luftwaffe German gross in gold which is also featured on the site. I would prefer to sell as a set but i would consider selling them separately if i received a good offer. [Condition: Near Mint]

LUFTWAFFE HONOUR GOBLET AWARDED TO A PILOT.
These very rare Luftwaffe honour goblets were Hermann Goring's personal award to his aircrews, most were awarded to flight engineers, air gunners and radio operators but this example is especially interesting and desirable as the original owner was a pilot. This fine silver goblet stands at just over 8 inches in height and it has never been cleaned and it has a very attractive black age patina. The obverse side of the Goblet features two eagles in combat, the reverse side features the design of the iron cross with swastika and date. Around the base of the goblet is the description of the award, FUR BESONDERE LEISTUNG IM LUFTKREIG, hand engraved above this is the presentation inscription, FELDWEBEL ALFONS STRATER AM 7.11.42. The base of the goblet is stamped with the makers details, Feinsilber Alpaka Auflage Jon Wagner & Sohn. Complete with photocopy document from the Luftwaffe service list confirming that Alfons Strater was a pilot. [Condition: Near Mint]
