Ball Hinge Luftwaffe Flack Badge in Nickel Silver

Ball Hinge Luftwaffe Flack Badge in Nickel Silver

Code: 56664

SOLD

A particularly nice example of the Luftwaffe Flak Badge in, I believe, Nickel Silver with the desirable ball hinge. Although unmarked the Badge can be attributed by it’s characteristics to the maker Adolf Scholze.

The elongated eagle’s head is unlike any other manufacturer and thus makes this one of the few badges identifiable by maker in photographs. The reverse is lightly scooped, with the characteristic Adolf Scholze ball-hinge as found on other marked badges, such as the minesweeper. There is also a characteristic trapezoidal punch-hole between the wreath, gun base, and breech.

Overall condition is very good, the badge with a pleasing patina. All elements are working well.
