    As far as I know, these were produced and awarded as late as 1943 !
    Is there any way to distinguish the early awarded ones from the later ?

    Hi Marc,

    That's the reason that I referred to the badge in my original post as a 'type 1', as the Legion Condor title doesn't really fit. I know for certain these were awarded during the Polish campaign, but up until 1943 is suprising news to me. When it comes to distinguishing early badges from late ones using the 1943 criteria if that is correct, then probably the easiest sign to look out for would be brass/tombak badges and rear set ups. This material had gone from badge making well before '43, and steel and zinc had become the norm. I know there are exceptions to this broad approach, but it is one way of knowing the piece is of early production.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks a lot Ned :-)
    Maybe the exchanged needle and (block) , explains the missing black finish, if there has been soldering involved :-) then all the paint would have burnt off !
