    Looks like a very nice example to me! :jumping:

    I've never heard of the 'cast wreath' theory. I would say die struck.

    Thanks John for the comments.

    I looked up the source of the "Cast Wreaths" opinion and it came from Mike Kenny and Frank Heukemes who were commenting on a Juncker Glider badge and stated that "in most cases Juncker wreaths are cast except for earlier Luftwaffe badges".

    Lovely badge, Stan! Maybe they felt that the blanks were cast and then die-struck for detail. The wreath of every original Glider Pilot Badge I'd had was clearly struck on a set of dies.
