    Excellent set Karsten, all early pieces, I would imagine very difficult to obtain now !......Tom, commonly known as the "Luftwaffe battle badge" and highly controversial within the collecting community ! was it, wasnt it.....see here Luftwaffe Badges
    Prost ! Steve.

    Tom...thats the issue here....many including the author of the above link doubt it was ever issued/awarded, it was authorised as stated....so I guess there are NO photographs of wear....it is believed by many that only prototypes were contructed, I have never seen an authenticated piece, many fakes yes !
    Prost ! Steve.

    wouldn't that mean that if it was only in prototype form that there wouldn't be a 57er version?

    Hi Tom,

    They never got around to produce these and several other before the war ended, however they are official 1957 version and are described and illustrated in the official documents.

    So as a 57er version they are genuine, but not in wartime versions.

    Tom, Karsten is correct....a rare 57er along with its Luftwaffe brothers, the Luftwaffe Panzer assault badges !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Here is the Ballon badge that neither was produced wartime, but part of the official 1957 version.
