Army paratrooper badge – Friedrich Linden, Lüdenscheid
Army paratrooper badge – Friedrich Linden, Lüdenscheid. Second pattern late war zinc Fallschirmschützenabzeichen des Heeres with riveted eagle. Typical FLL example with thick zinc rivets, silver finish on the eagle and gilded wreath. Remains in lightly worn condition and retained the gilding and silver finish well. Shows some patina on a small area of the eagle and some discoloration on the top and bottom part of the wreath. Setup shows light surface oxidation, most likely from moisture that got stuck between the setup and uniform or storage.
Overall very well preserved and not always seen with this much gilding and silver finish remaining. Very uncommon badge that has become difficult to find.
