    I was wondering if anyone can help me indentify this badge.
    [​IMG]

    It's 2 3/4" wide X 1 1/4" tall and the makers mark on the back reads
    "Wilh. Deumer Ludenscheid - Ges. Gesch."

    I have been unable to locate this badge in any of our reference books.

    Thank you.

    This is a hat badge for a pilot of the Deutsches Luft Verband, the Civil Aviation branch of the Nazi Party.... This badge was made in the Pre-WWII years when the DLV was secretly training pilots for the soon-to-emerge Luftwaffe....

    Price range is between $200-250 bucks...

    Ahh I need to start buying more uniforms, badges and equipment for my Third Reich collection. Unfortunatly it is a very expensive hobby.
