Transitional Luftwaffe badges - F.W. Assmann & Söhne

Recommended Posts

A couple of transitional Luftwaffe badges produced by the firm of F.W. Assmann & Söhne who were based in Lüdenscheid.

The term ‘transitional’, when it comes to badges, is used for badges that were produced from parts, held in stock by the manufacturer, of both pre-and war time designs.

 When it comes to collecting, these transitional pieces are some of the hardest to find.

First up is a pilot’s badge with a first pattern pre-war eagle on an early third pattern wartime wreath.

Observer badge with the same period designs; a first pattern pre-war eagle on an early third pattern wartime wreath….and of all the badge makers, of the time, my favourite design of pre-war Observer eagle.
