  • TWO-PIECE C.E. JUNCKER & .800 SILVER HALLMARKED PRUSSIAN ARMY PILOT BADGE - Imperial German Military Antiques Sale

    TWO-PIECE C.E. JUNCKER & .800 SILVER HALLMARKED PRUSSIAN ARMY PILOT BADGE

    SKU: 11-520

    $895.00

    This is a consignment item. It is a high-quality Prussian Army Pilot Badge from the workshops of noted Berlin firm C. E. Juncker. Many people do not realize that Juncker was more than an aviation flight badge-maker (although it produced some of Germany’s finest badges). In fact, C. E. Juncker was a full-line military effects firm favored by many German military officers. It even was responsible for the ultra-high-quality pickelhauben employed by the Regiment des Garde du Corps, the Kaiser’s personal guard.

The massive Hohenzollern Eagles that topped their full-parade-configuration helmets only increased their splendor]. Still, their reputation for producing excellent flight badges is well deserved. Three different types of flight badges were produced. The basic flight badge was stamped (cliche). If you are familiar with Imperial German Army and Navy Wound Badges (stamped out by high pressure machines), this is the same design. The second type (a step up) was the one-piece massive design. These solid badges were manufactured from a single piece of metal. The third, and highest-quality flight badge, was the two-piece hollow design. These badges were made from two separate metal pieces that were then soldered together. A weep hole on the badge’s reverse allowed the gases produced during the soldering process to escape. Our C. E. Juncker flight badge is an excellent example of this third design. The badge’s obverse features a laurel and…
