    The 2013 repro "small" pins "New" and "Aged"


    Does anyone know the story of the wooden pin?
    (IMO early postwar attempt to recreate the divisional pin for veteran meeting purpose - in 1952 the Fallschirmjäger founded their Bund deutscher Fallschirmjäger.)

    Are there other forms that exist?

    Thanks
    Peter
