    1. Fallschirmkorps pin

    Hello!
    I would ask you opinions about this pin. IMO is a very nice original, and maybe worn.
    Do you know photos with pin in wear? I know only famous Kesselring's photo.

    Thank you very much!

    You will get two opinions ;

    1. It is an original, from the hoard found in Milan 20 years ago.
    2. It is a fake made 20 years ago and marketed as having come from a hoard in Milan found 20 years ago

        Yes, Norm F did a great job compiling all the evidence. For my part I wouldn't buy one of the suspect ones ( as above)

          An original badge of the Milano Hoard ... not the japanese repro which is different as said in the post .
          I still do have some with bags from this Milano hoard and i have no doubts regarding the italian making during the war , not later !

                  Thank you very much!
                  Is Kesselring's photo, only known with this pin, right?

                    Yes, that is the only known photo. It is likely he was presented a pin from the first run (perhaps a prototype for him to approve) and the others were either not finished or issued. Just my guess.

                          So, who wore it and when did they wear it ? Also, what type was it, the small one, or the larger (Weitze) type ?
