WWII German Luftwaffe Officer’s Hand Embroidered Eagle & Wreath/Cockade Set Cut from Visor Cap-This set consists of the eagle and winged wreath/cockade unit removed from a visor cap. The eagle is silver bullion with bright silver highlights remaining in the swastika. The majority of the paper backing remains on the reverse. The wreath and wings of the cockade are nicely toned silver bullion. There is slight wear to a few spots of this piece but the silver gilt can be still seen on the low spots. The thread is slightly missing from the right wing. The paper backing on this example remains fully intact. These are both cut from the original greyish-blue wool/felt backing. The desirable set is in excellent condition.
