"Deumer" Fallschirmschützenabzeichen im Etui
bought this nice "Deumer" set. IMO a honestly worn badge, who knows not only the inlet of the case. The badge is laying into the "typical" Deumer case, who was very often delivered from Deumer. They are over 70 years together for sure.....
I have not much background about the holder of the badge. Only the first name and that he was heavy wounded in the battle of Kreta.

a very nice set,hope you find more on the man.
I like it a lot.
A beautiful set Joachim, an even better piece when you know a little about the holder. I hope that you will be able to "pin down" the recipient in the future. Leon.

I bought this set from a german collector, who got this set from the family of the holder 20 years ago. That`s all Informations about the holder.....i think after 20 years there will be come not more Infos about the holder.
But a nice set from a early paratrooper for sure!
A great set with a perfect 'been there' look if ever i've seen it, wonderful! You've only got to take one look to see that this just oozes the originality and desirability that collectors crave, a good investment on your part mate!

Wise words Ned!
My feeling was the same, as i saw the badge for the first time.
