Legion Condor Panzer badge

Here is another shot of the catch which is identical to the catch on Lechner's badge shown in post#65 and Che's post # 91. A pity that it is covered in solder-I will probably get it fixed properly.

Here's the missing photo!

Thanks for photos, Stan.

The first type of Condor Legion Tank Badges never had catch, Stans photos confirm my assumption.

Che,

You could well be correct. Perhaps that is the reason we see them sewn onto the uniforms.

Jacques,

Herewith a photo of the top part of the badge where the pin might originally have been located.

It seems convincing there was a hinge there once! Also the spots are so small for attachment it looks like this is why they fell off so easily.

Che, it seems to me that you can see where a hinge was. Why do you think these were made without pins? I don't see good evidence for that theory.

Best, Sal

Hello Sal

Excuse me for silence.

My evidences again:

1. They all have a repaired attach system.

There are no identical hooks, there are no identical pins. All different. (look post #91)

You observed a sign with original attach system (not repaired) ?

2. The Stans sign never had a pin in the top part, the best evidence for that theory.

Without a trace it is impossible to remove a pin of SILVER sign, silver enters reaction with solder. (look post #103)

You could clean solder of silver sign without traces ? It is impossible, even in a small part.

3. The badges have been sewn to a uniform in early photos. (look post #88,89)

regards

CHE

Hi,

On my badge, the Hinge ist not re-soldered and looks untouched, thus the hook. Indeed, these constructions look very fragile. It could be possible, as these badges were worn permanently, the attach system broken off, and thus the badge was sewn to the uniform by the owner. It could explain that pictures shown it sewn onto the uniform, and also that variation/repairs exist.

Here are pictures of my badge. the pin could be not original but the hinge and hook are originally soldered.

And I observed the portuguese sign with interesting not repaired attach system ... but attach system of german jewellers.

One portuguese sign and set of attach systems.

Jacques, on your sign very interesting attach system.

Please make photos without an inclination.

My theory will be not true, if will be found one more sign with attach system "Jacques".

II'd like to revive this old thread with a question: is this the piece illustrated in the old Klietmann's "Deutsche Auszeichnungen" plates' volume?

 

It looks like a very well finished piece of the so-called "Meybauer" type.

 

Any opinion?

 

All the best,

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
