this war weary chap came along with a small collection of LW related Afrika Korps stuff.
It was caked with a heavy deposit of whitish coloured mud....
It came from a vet pick up so it was a nice find possibly lost somewhere in Africa or Tunisia.
A gentle rub with a toothbrush revealed some surprising details.
What I thought was that it was a black grade badge that had been painted over a brass base. It certainly looked like a brass badge but it is in fact magnetic.
Weight is very light coming in at 7.23 grams
I know this is considered as a 'first type' or 'Legion Condor' badge but I prefer to refer to this type as the 1936 pattern
Comment or opinions welcomed
All the best
