Guys, this is great. It's a "Jump Badge Clinic". Thanks for the opportunity to learn.

Thanks again!

Willi,

I think you have "cornered" the marked. Very, very, nice badges

Here's one more for the database.

Thanks,
Tony

Tony, no cornering of the market here. These badges are not rare at all, plenty around at the larger shows. And, I know others that have quite a few as well. Will post some more over the next few days.

Here is another.....

Here is one from the Raleigh show. Except for the backing, it is identical to the badge in post #3. Really like the woven base with the subdued wreath; very late war.

Hi Willi,

Here is another with a subdued wreath and also on a woven background. This badge is very similar to the example in post 11. The badge in post 11 is padded, this one is not padded.

  1. A beautiful example in which the backing is more charcoal than blue-grey, and the eagle is more lemon yellow than gold.

John, the back of that charcol one is very unique.

Here is the back of the one featured on the left of post #43. I have always liked this variation.
