German WWII Cased Paratrooper Badge-Early construction this is a handsome detailed example with a beautifully gilted eagle with noticeable highlights. The wreath has a toned burnished look to it, and the finish is intact. The reverse has the letter A. but this is not an Assmann type piece. The hinge and pin set up function perfectly. This is nestled in an early quality case, with a felt lining. There are some scuffs to the exterior blue leatherette finish. The top of the case is marked “Fallschrimschutzen abzeichen”. Overall, near excellent example!
