    just been looking in my Parratrooper book, is this a late war Assman? in my book it only has a late war assman with a L/64 with a A stamped on the back, says made in 1944-45 decline in quality from wartime conditions
    or did Assman make early badges allso?
    heres some pics of what im reading i do see the marking as different on the back

    This is indeed a late war para badge from Assmann in your book and yes Assmann made very early para badges. Assmann, Deumer and Juncker made the so called A-type badges before the war started in 1939. But they are very hard to find, especially the Assmann A-type badge....when you guys see one for sold, pease let me know!

    Got mine yesterday! It's a really heavy tome and fantastically informative, you won't go far wrong with this superb reference book!

    Hi guys, I am looking at all threads. This Badge I bought sometime ago, happy with it. What type is in your opinion?

    If I may give you my opinion, it looks that the wreath, hinge/pin and catch are from type E, but the Eagle looks more that of Type F?

    Hi, look at the rivets, they are not the nice smooth, rounded looking ones one would like to see. Maybe your right, and have a E-F combo. It is maybe possible it had been "fixed" or whatnot

    Hi Juan,

    It's clearly a type 'E' badge as the wreath is nickel silver as opposed to the type 'D' which is the same design but made in brass. What's throwing you off about the eagle shown in the book is that it's not been trimmed correctly. The narrow gap between the tail feathers and the left wing, and the same area between that wing and the right one have not been filed out after being stamped , whereas that of the type 'F' in the book has. The type 'F' has a completely different wreath made from zinc.

    To quote the book pp.77:

    "Note that the eagle has not been completely finished; the flashing was not trimmed away between it's wings and tail feathers after being die struck. This uncommon feature can be found on other Assmann variants and was not just confined to type 'E' badges".

    There's your answer, no mysteries.

    Regards, Ned.
