Luftwaffe Flying Clasp in Bronze for Medium, Heavy and Dive Bombers-Officially titled the “Operational Flying Clasp for Heavy, Medium and Dive Bombers” (“Kampf-und Sturzkampf-flieger”), this was initiated on January 30, 1941. This great example, in bronze, was awarded to any Bomber personnel to include Dive Bombers, Transport and Glider Squadrons who were able to complete 20 or more operational flights. Its central motif is a black finished (10% intact) winged bomb pointing downward, surrounded by a wreath with a swastika on the bottom. On either side there is a series of oak leaves. The badge is zinc and missing all of the finish. There reverse has a long, slightly tapered pin with a square wire catch.  A sound example!
