Default Imperial Naval Observer (Schaper) from the MAX

A nice and rare jeweler cut out version by Schaper.

Fortunately I´m not an envious person...
Otherwise I´wouldn´t sleep for a week after seeing this beautifully modified badge!
Congratulations!

Hi Ferg,

Yes it is the same one. I have been after it since I first saw it years ago. Many people asked to look at it as I walked by with it in a riker case I was carrying

Hi Hagrid,

Thank you for the compliment. There were some nice Imperial badges (Zeppelin groups, named Navy Sea Pilots, engraved minis) for sale at the MAX. Just not enough money to get them all!

Nice badge, congrats. I was able to take a look to the badge in person before you picked it up. Really cool and unique piece!
