The missing "g" is the kiss of death in my opinion. No German would abbreviate Jäger in this way.

This is the Deutscher Luftsportverband (German Air Sports Association) pin from around 1934. The rim seems thinner to me than the rim of the insignia in the photo. Is there another version?

That is a beautiful set, the best I've ever seen. He has the Chanakale (Gallipoli) bar on his Turkish War Medal ribbon so he was one of reactively few Germans at that battle. Very cool.
