Luftwaffe Pilot Badge manufactured by Juncker. This model is referred to as the 'J3' which was the last type made in nickel silver by the Juncker company. The badge features the correct 3rd style eagle and wreath showing only normal wear and age. The pin, hinge, and catch are undamaged. It's possible that the catch had been re-soldered during the period, or it may be that the silvered finish has worn around the catch area. The eagle is maker marked on the reverse. The rivets appear possibly tightened. The reverse of the wreath has light scratching which appears to be the name of the recipient, although it would need to be deciphered. The case is from the mid war period with the so-called 'brick' pattern covering and sprayed flocking to the upper and lower lining pieces. The name of the award is nicely embossed with the correct pattern lettering. Push button closure.  The flocking is worn at the center of the lid lining where it pressed against the eagle. The exterior of the case shows age and handling with a worn area to the covering under the bottom of the case. Overall a fine example of the final nickel/Buntmetall Juncker design.
