Unmarked Pilot Badge - Assumed to be Deumer

Recommended Posts

You're probably familiar with this pilot badge I'm about to show. It has been identified a a Deumer piece yet it's never found with the maker mark. SO, I dug out some Deumer marked badges and made comparisons. My comparisons are all fully marked Deumer badges:

Pilot Bagde

FJ Badge

RO/AG Badge

Observer Badge

First up. let's take a look at this unmarked pilot badge:

Excellent comparison shots, Rich.

The consensus seems to be that these early badges are indeed by ?W.Deumer? and the characteristics certainly point in that direction.

As well as the obvious use of nickel silver (eagle) and brass (wreath) in the production of the P/O, close-ups of three different PB?s, show that ?Deumer? experimented with a few metal mixes in an attempt to get it stable for the dies.

As with the P/O...Nickel silver.
