Wehrmacht (Army) Parachutist Badge by FLL Type B. The Brandenburgs
A very rare FallschirmschÃ¼tzenabzeichen in zinc without makerâ€™s name but displaying the typical manufacturing characteristics of late war Type B badges by Friedrich Linden of LÃ¼denscheid
Of multi-piece construction with a gilded zinc oak wreath with a Wehrmacht eagle clutching a swastika on the top of the wreath, and three ribbons on the bottom.
Affixed to the badge is a silvered zinc eagle, attached via two ball-rivets to the reverse.
Generally very good condition but with a small crack in the wreath below the rivet at the eagleâ€™s tail feathers.
A late war zinc badge and although the Army Fallschirmjager had amalgamated with the Luftwaffe early in the war, members of the elite Brandenburgs who qualified wore the Army FallschirmschÃ¼tzenabzeichen.
