Fallschirmjäger Officer's Hand Embroidered Parachute Qualification Badge

Code: 54837

RESERVED

A quite beautiful example of a Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger officer’s Parachute Qualification badge in cloth, intended for wear on the Fliegerbluse.
Whilst the wreath and Swastika are made of the standard twisted aluminium thread the eagle is formed in Celleon thread with the features highlighted in a darker thread, the use of Celleon no doubt making it more robust and less likely to sustain damage.
The cloth is the high quality ribbed Trikot material seen on privately purchased uniforms, the edges of which show the remains of the hand stitching used to attach it to the Fliegerbluse. To the reverse virtually all of the paper covering remains.
A rare variant of a highly desirable Fallschirmjäger officer’s badge
