    Opinions needed on this Para Badge Please

    Recommended Posts

    It must be said that there are still two schools of thought on these ?A, L/64? marked Assmann Para?s

    1. That they are late war examples.

    2. That they were produced post-war for the allied troops.

    I would say, and this is only a theory, that both are true.

    I believe that Assmann produced these badges at war?s end and continued the assembly of parts (albeit for a short period), post-war.

    I was once told by an old die-hard collector that examples only finished (gilded or painted) to the obverse of the eagle are post-war.... This would make sense due to the shortage of materials etc, and is something that?s stuck in my mind over the years.

    As for this one, Kev? I would have no problem having it in my collection. :beer:
