COMMEMORATIVE NAVY OBSERVER BADGE

SKU: 11-522

$1,250.00

It is a seldom seen flight badge, a Navy Commemorative Observer Badge. The German Imperial Naval Air Service was rather unusual because they offered two different pilot badges. They also offered a Commemorative Badge for both pilots and observers. The difference in the two badges was subtle. The Commemorative Pilot Badge featured an albatross with upraised wings flapping. The Commemorative Observer Badge depicted the albatross with his wings outspread, soaring and observing what was below him. Both badges were unique to the Army or Naval Air Services. They were the only two badges that were issued in the prinzengroße size. Like all wartime Navy flight badges, it is gilt-toned.
The badge, which is of a cutout design, features a wreath of oak and laurel leaves joined together by a ribbon at the bottom. A Hohenzollern Crown tops the wreath.
The badge’s reverse has a flat pin. The eagle’s reverse displays both the manufacturer’s and the silver hallmarks. It would make an excellent addition for your collection.
