CASED DEUMER PARA BADGE
Cased specimen of the Fallschirmschützenabzeichen der Luftwaffe by W. Deumer of Lüdenscheid.
The two-piece construction badge features a die struck tombak based and gold gilded eagle with a die struck tombak based wreath.
The reverse displays the correct two tombak rivets and the soldered on tombak barrel hinge with its pin. The original round wire catch was replaced, IMO the replacement is wartime.
The award comes housed in its case. The case is constructed out of a wood and pressed cardboard base that is covered in a simulated grained blue leather. To the front is a gilded steel spring loaded push button. To the back is a gilded steel, staggered, piano hinge. To the very top in the gilded Gothic style script it reads: "Fallschirmschützen = Abzeichen". The interior-bottom of the case is constructed out of a wooden base that is covered in a light blue moleskin fabric that outlines the pin, hinge and catch assembly. The interior top is constructed out of a purple silk like material and has an underlying pad.
A great set, a gorgeous display piece.
