Picked this Deutscher Luftsportverband button-hole badge up a while back, Civil 3rd Form (large) made by K. Wurster - Markneukirchen / SA. Classified as large - measures - 3.1cm x 1.6 cm. one of a group of seven variants, belongs to same organisation which issued the three grade gliding badges (blue background with 1 - 3 white seagull birds) do members have any of the variants of this badge to show ? please not the gliding badges. Regards

Some more great examples. Thanks Scowen! Were these just membership pins, or were they given out as awards?

Two very nice pieces Don, nice indeed. I see looking through Hüsken's catalogue the first one show comes in at a tasty 300 Euro. Although catalogue prices are only a guideline, usually a overpriced guideline at that, still a nice thing to have in the collection.

Thank you Gentlemen.

Alex; Yes, that first one is indeed a tough one to find.

Paul; As far as I'm aware, these were just membership badges.

Cheers

Don

Nice examples Gents.

I believe my button hole example is one of the smaller versions.

Thread resurrection. :)

The unmarked DLV badge here is bigger than the rest, the wing span especially. Was this a different variant? I quite like the badge

To be honest I quite like all of them

Lest I forget my buttonhole also a Deumer.  Beg your pardon.  Not a Deumer but a Wurster.  Notice the lack of pebbling in the red enamel as compared to post 1.

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.  
    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that

    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian
