WW2, Finnish army Air Defense 77 88 1941 badge base plate. ( regimental badge )
Original WW2 era Finnish army badge baseplates.
Manufactured by the famous Velj. Sundqvist, stamped.
These are just the base plates for the badge, for reason unknown to us, some extra pieces were manufactured, and stored for several decades, until we go them.
Very nice items for arts and crafts, good place holder for your collection until the whole badge is found.
Made from solid copper, all are stained and all are little bit different color. Some scratches and other storage marks are possible.
We are not 100% sure what this is, ( got lazy ), there was 77 pcs of Air defense cannons in Helsinki city during 1941, some of them were 8,8cm Flak RMB37. So we thank the helpful collectors who will lecture us about this badge in advance.
Swastika has nothing to do with germans, it is old sign of good luck, instated in 1918 for use of Finnish Air Force by Count von Rosen. Air Defense troops were part of Air force originally. As an interesting detail, the first plane that had the swastika on its side, was made by Thulinverken of sweden, Count von Rosen also was convicted to pay fines for unlicensed export of prohibited material.
