This is not meant as an endorsement of otherwise but -

For anyone who has For Fuhrer and Fatherland, Military Awards of the Third Reich by LTC. John R. Angola: Look on page 201 as this larger glider variation is noted. He states it may have been a "prototype" badge.

David Stijn discusses them in his excellent Glider Badge book. I recall they were from the Posen area?

I think that this badge needs some more investigation IMO.
I'm not into large gliders, but it's a valuable item and wouldn't buy it based on the pics provided here, unless someone explanes that it's quite normal what we see.

What I believe to be true;

The large eagle glider was wartime made as evidenced by a period published photo.

If private purchase, variations seem very likely.
