Description

Zeppelin Badge. This badge measures 3.7 cm in diameter and has a horizontal pinback. The center portion is metal with a lithographed design of the Zeppelin company logo and the edge is rendered in gilt and blue enamels some of which have worn. I have never seen one of these before and due to the quality believe it to be a presentation piece for an employee or somebody who did something of merit for the company. This same logo design at the center is found on the cap badges and tunic buttons of Zeppelin crew during the Third Reich era. It is also possible that this may be a short lived uniform item worn by the crew. Very rare. LH8178
