    RARE WW2 GERMAN THIRD REICH NSFK POWERED AIRCRAFT PILOTS BADGE 2ND TYPE

     

    NAZI Germany: NSFK Badge for Motor Powered Aircraft Pilots.
    This is the 2nd type of the badge, marked Ges. Gesch. 22639 on the
    reverse. In silvered tombak (non ferrous metal alloy).
    The badge was instituted in May 1939, by General Friedrich Christiansen,
    Commander of the NSFK (and later Aviator General of the Luftwaffe and
    Commander of the Wehrmacht in the Netherlands) in order to replace
    the previous cloth badge that was in use since Jul. 1938.
    The NSFK (National Socialist Flyers Corps) was instituted in 1937, as
    a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party focused on conducting
    military aviation training in gliders and private airplanes.

    This badge is a text book example 2nd type and is classed amongst collectors as very rare.
