Beautiful, early WWI Prussian Observer Badge, Austrian-made in .925 silver. Applied name panel on reverse: K??le Br??ckner. Badge depicts the enameled flag of the German tactical symbol for an Army Corps surrounded by oak leaves on one side and laurel leaves on the other joined together at the bottom in a bow, atop is a Prussian crown. It is uncertain if this is a named piece to an aviator or a presented piece to a sweetheart: K??le is used often as a women's name, but it has its roots in German for Karl or Charles.
