ARTIFACT:

What we have here is a lovely Squadron Badge for EITHER, the 1st Group of the Luftwaffe Combat Bombing Squadron 53, LEGION CONDOR, Active in EVERY Phase of WWII from POLAND- ON, OR, a predecessor badge of a Bomb Squadron, or THE Bomb Group, Kampfgruppe 88, of THE Condor Legion.

The jury is currently out. This was sold to me as a Legion Condor squadron badge, from the Spanish Civil War. It was found in Spain. I located it in an obscure German reference book, which ID'd it as the badge of Kampfgeschwader 53. BUT, all reference I can find of the Kampfgeschwader 53 insignia shows the Eagle facing Downward, NOT Upward, and places it on a Shield instead of the Legion Condor AIRCRAFT RONDEL. So, I am leaning toward an actual LEGION CONDOR AVIATION UNIT BADGE until proven otherwise. 

VINTAGE: World War II.

SIZE: Approximately: 7/8" in diameter badge with 2" in length Pin.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Enameled Silvered Brass.

ATTACHMENT: Lapel pin.

MARKINGS: N/A.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a WWII German Aviation collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. 

CONDITION: 8+ (Excellent): The badge shows very fine hair lines on the white enamel otherwise, badge is in excellent condition.        

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
