    After the first and second versions were presented

    Fallschirmsprungabzeichen - Parachute jump badge - First Modell 1966-1973

    Fallschirmsprungabzeichen - Parachute jump badge - Second Modell 1973 - ??


    here is the third one.

    The badge was revised at an unknown date, probably in the 1970s.

    It had a longer one-piece wire on the back which was simply soldered to the base plate.

    Transitional models still have the base plate with the two holes for the individually soldered short wires.

    New base plates have an elongated groove where the wire was placed.

    A countersunk head screw was soldered on top of it for fastening.

    There is also no precise information about the production period of this model. The specialist for GDR medals and awards Klaus H. Feder assumes that this model was replaced by one without a colored national coat of arms (fourth model) around 1988. Approx. can also mean earlier.


    Here is a transitional model with an older base plate. Wire simply soldered on.

    Hello,

    In order to say anything I would have to see the back without the screw nut.

    The problem with the later pieces is that they were still reproduced for the collectors' market after October 1990.
    The distinction from the 1988 and 1989/90 variants doesn't make this easy.

    So base plates appear that would have to come from up to 5 embossing blocks. What is striking are the rings on the back, which have different positions and diameters.

    There are variants that simply could not have existed.
    There could have been others.

    I've left that out here because it's worth a separate topic with regard to the variants 1988 and 1989/90.

    Regards

    Hello,

    Here is a variant with a brass-plated or brass base plate. You can only really see the difference on the back. You can clearly see the color difference between the bronzed medallion and the jump number pendant.

    For comparison, I added pictures with the standard piece with a bronzed base plate. The color difference is noticeable.

    Hello,

    here is a rare early transitional piece. The base plate has two recesses for individual wires. A short wire was soldered on.

    All metal parts are bronzed.
