Well you have something special here.

I've seen a few of the Juncker gliders before, including owned them. I've collected them because it's a less crowded niche in the Luftwaffe badges.

This is the only badge that I could call absolutely mint. It has surely never been worn and probably only removed from the box a handful of times. The box is obviously worn, but I would bet that it's the nicest example of the badge in existence.

Well done.

Great and rare set! But honestly speaking I wouldn't call it mint - you can see that only some traces of black finish left on the pin. So imo the badge was worn.
