WW1 IMPERIAL GERMANY BAVARIAN PILOTS AWARD WITH ENGRAVED REVERSE BY POELLATH IN SILVER.
This award was issued by the German state of Bavaria to its Pilots during the First World War, as opposed to the Imperial German Pilots award which displays the Imperial crown this award displays the Bavarian Crown. This example is maker marked by the renowned maker POELLATH SCHROBENHAUSEN and is marked SILVER. The badge has a plain reverse which has been period engraved with the following:
Dem Fleugzeugfuhrer Lt d.B. R.A. Hermann
v. bayn Flg.Ers. Abt. 1
I have not done any research on this medal which is an exceptional buy for either a Aviation award collector or a collector of WW1 German pilots memorabilia.
