1957 De-Nazified Luftwaffe Badges

Recommended Posts


I often wonder why none of the original, but altered dies, were used to produce these awards. There certainly were enough firms around that probably still had their original dies. (Speaking of which...where did all those dies go???)

However, I think that some were used. Recently a '57 RO/AG badge was sold on German Ebay that was unmistakenly made from Deumer parts. The eagle was identical as was the wreath but you could see that the die had been altered to remove the swaz from the wreath.

I also wonder why we don't see more of these?
