    Major,

    Great additions to the thread, and many thanks for posting. I don't think that I have ever seen an issue packet for one of these, the pierced crown example is beautiful. BTW, the photos are just fine...

    Steve-
    I appreciate the detail you capture in your photography. You helped me confirm that hinge/clasp assembly is distinctly German. I have no doubt those WWI Sweetheart wings I showed you a while back are indeed of German origin, most likely made during the Occupation period.

    Thanks Chucky. We already knew they were German though, didn't we??

    Most probably THE finest example of a two piece Bavarian Pilot Badge that I have ever seen. This is example is by the firm 'Karl Poellath'.

    Notice how the rays on the reverse do not extend all the way to the center, this is a characteristic that I have noticed on badges marked so. Most of the fakes pretending to be wartime examples having this mark feature rays extending all the way to the center.

    The same company used 'Carl Poellath' as their trademark and also produced an example that is believed to be post-war where the rays extend all the way to the center. Most examples marked as such are as said, thought to be products of the 1920's-30's. That particular version is considered to be an original piece.

    There have been very complex conversations concerning the name difference, but as of this date, this previous is my best understanding of the facts presented.

    Not the best photo, but here's an unmarked badge which has classic Meybeur characteristics. Small ribbon knot, fat pin and very detailed.

    Nice examples Mark. The quality of German badges from this era is unmistakable, even the prinzen and miniature pieces were of exceptional craftsmanship.
