WWII German Army Paratrooper Badge-This is the 3rd pattern by C.E. Juncker. It's defining features are the short barrel hinge and square wire hinge. The badge is produced entirely in zinc with a gold and silver wash to the wreath and eagle. The finish to both remains mostly intact. There is a distinct bubbling to the finish which is a common trait. There is no visible wear to the badge, it is excellent. The reverse is unmarked and the pin works as intended. A great example of a desirable badge!
