    Default Luftwaffe pilot badge (Flugzeugführerabzeichen)

    Hello, I`m looking for Luftwaffe pilot badge. And search online shops i` m find one example. TEXT from shop: "Pilots Badge by the maker BSW. The badge has been repaired with the eagle soldered to the wreath although the rivets are still intact. It may have been that they tried to tighten the rivets up and this was how they tried to do it, as the eagle rocks slightly on the wreath. The badge is a 2nd pattern BSW with the claw flaw to the top swastika arm where it has not been cut out."
    What do you think about this badge?
    Thank a lot.

    I believe it's a genuine zinc Flugzeugfuhrer badge. Rugged but right, as they say. Better see what others reckon though to be on the safe side.

    Yep, thankfully, as far as I know, they haven't got around to faking the zinkers
