German WWII Luftwaffe Flight Operational Clasp in Gold for Reconnaissance-This is a choice, textbook, unmarked example, as are 25% percent of the operations flying clasps. This was awarded to crews with 110 or more missions. The gilting is superlative including the beautiful highlights to the oak leaves and wreath. The burnishing on the eagle is also outstanding. There is some slight verdigris around the wreath, but this would clean up just fine. This is made in a riveted construction as you would expect to find. The hinge and pin setup functions perfectly. This is as good as they get.
