WW2 Luftwaffe Generalluftzeugmeister (GL) Eagle
A scarce WW2 Luftwaffe Generalluftzeugmeister (GL) Eagle, in excellent condition, sometimes referred to as a cap eagle, however, all the German sources state this is a badge worn on the tunic pocket, period photographs exist of the badge being worn on either of the tunic pockets and by both civil and uniformed personnel. The GL appears to be a small organisation made up of civil engineers working on Luftwaffe projects, they were managed by serving Luftwaffe Officers and Senior NCOs, hence the images of military personnel wearing the badge. A nice example of this scarce badge, retaining all three pins, marked 'Ges Gesch' on the rear upper section of the cog wheel.
