Assmann pilot - question about the wreath


Recommended Posts

Hi Darius...

It is an A2 (2nd pattern) wreath, but not the A2 you may be thinking about!

Assmann produced a very early wreath known as the "Egg shaped" wreath (thus far found on combined pilot/observer, pilot and para badges) which is the true A1 wreath, making this type of wreath an A2.

Shown below are examples of the wreaths produced by Assmann.

Left: A1 (egg shaped) wreath. Middle: A2 (as per the one shown in the picture you posted) wreath. Right: A3 wreath.

Good day John

Many thanks for your explanation which remains well clear . Now - my next step will be by hand inspection / comparison with a real A1 Assmann badge.

Trying to be realistic and bearing in mind rarity of these badges - this may take years.... but this what collecting is all about.

Best regards

Darius

Hello John,

In your 'triple shot' photo example, with the various stages of Assmann wreaths, what style Assmann EAGLE is on the middle(A2 wreath) example?

Regards,

Mark

I'll take that Paratrooper badge when you're done with it :cheeky:
