This is an iconic, Early WWI M1913 Imperial Prussian Army Pilot Badge, manufactured circa 1914. This is a Type 1 badge, by Juncker ,in 800 Silver.
If only this early war badge could speak! It obviously had some use, and the long time in the Air War necessitated a period repair to the original C catch to maintain wearability. Otherwise, quite a striking piece with lovely moderate patina and very light wear: this badge was well cared for.
This badge is among 4 of our current offerings that were chosen by OVMS to be on the back cover of this year's MAX program.
World War I, Circa 1914.
Approximately 2-7/8" in height x 1-3/4" in width.
MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION:
Vertical "T" style pin with "C" type catch.
This is from a Prussian militaria collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. CON-RLB-VBJJX05/16 LBGGEX04/04/23 SBFGEX04/11/23
