    That's a Frontflugspange=für Kampfflieger in Silber (probably); the detail is terrible which would question its authenticity...

    It's definitely not 'dive bomber wings'; its an indicator of operational flights- 60 in the case of the silver grade. It was for pilots and crew of any type of bomber.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Hi Joe,

    It is a bomber clasp, but it's hard to say what class bronze, silver or gold from this photo alone. Looking at it, it may be tombak or possibly nickel-silver rather than zinc which means it is an earlier piece. Better pic's are required to make a judgment on grade and metal type, here's an interesting linky for you to check out.
