Bomber Clasp Gold By FLL With Presentation Box

This early Luftwaffe Bomber Clasp Gold by FLL is a very desirable and scarce item, constructed in gilded tombak, complete with presentation box.  This clasp is in unissued condition with all the gilt intact on the wreath and oak leaves, and the winged bomb emblem has nice original finish.  The reverse of the Bomber’s clasp is unmarked, but this variant is attributed to Friedrich Linden, Lüdenscheid (FLL), complete with tapered pin, block hinge and soldered “C” catch.  The presentation box is covered in blue leatherette with “Frontflugspange für Kampfflieger Gold,” embossed in gold, with some light scuffs.  The inside is lined with white rayon, with a push button hinge catch.

This Bomber Clasp has no damage or repairs, in mint condition which would be a desirable addition to any collection.
