Yes it is a visor badge. I've been told that the earlier ones did not have the flag. I may have been told incorrectly.
I was given two by a neighbor, a panzer and another one, forget what it was....
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

Yes, I believe it's a BW beret badge.....the early ones did not have the flag on the bottom
Wartime manufacturers like Assman and OLC continued to make badges for the post war german army
As a Ex servicemen with PTSD, I see this quote in a different context
"Enjoy the war, as the peace will be unbearable"
Thank you both for your prompt replies.
It seems then that this is nailed as an early BW para.
I have seen another para badge with the Assmann stamp but that had the flag below.
All the best
