Schimpf Badge (3'd Fallschirmjager Division), in aged condition
The 3'd Fallschirmjager Division went into combat in June 1944 in Normandy. In August it was virtually destroyed in the area of Falaise. Formed again in Belgium thanks to replacements from 22nd, 51st, 53rd Luftwaffe Field Regiments. During September 1944 it fought as a part of Kampfgruppe "Becker" in Arnhem area. It surrendered in April 1945 to American troops in the Ruhr. We have changed several features to prevent it being passed as an original.
This Schimpf Badge is available in aged condition. This is perfect for collectors who want to add it to their WW2 German Paratrooper badge collection or uniform display as it more closely reflects a badge found almost 70 years ago.
Notice the dark worn and tarnished areas that look identical to a genuine III FJD Badge.
