    Default 1950's FJ badges

    Gentlemen,

    These are the only two pics I have for the moment, I picked these up and don't have them in hand as yet

    The two tone badge was described as a 1958 qualification badge.....plastic. It has amazing detail to it

    The second is simply a beret badge.

    Any thoughts on the two tone badge, nothing I have researched describes one.

    Thanking you.

    AMTG.......nice veterans badges, not official (Bundeswehr or otherwise), these plastic badges were either bought or given to veterans attending meetings/treffens in post war West Germany, up to, I believe the 1980's, like you say one is for a beret, the other two tone badge a jacket badge.............still great badges to have, they would of been worn together with a numbered events pin as these I have in my collection....see post #6 on, in this thread....
    Veteran reunion/Treffen badges..................
    Prost ! Steve.
