WW2 German Luftwaffe Aircraft Typenschild Data Plate – Ju88 A-4 – WITH HISTORY!


Out of stock



You are bidding on a SUPERB  German Aircraft Data Tag,  originating from a Tropical Ju88 A-4!  This specific tag came from Ju 88 A-4 W.Nr.3275 of 7./LG 1, coded L1+LR, that was lost over the Mediterranean in 1941.  This was recovered from the wreck by an RAF Intelligence Officer.


This data tag was located on various components of the Ju88.  It indicated the aircraft type, serial number, and manufacturer.  This specific tag originated from the fuselage section of the Ju88.


Made of aluminum, this data tag is in FANTASTIC condition.  There are some slight scratches, marks, and corrosion, however it is still quite solid.  The entire tag is approx. 2″ x 3″ in size, and is one of the main identifying tags for a fuselage structure.  Made by Henschel, markings indicated are:



Best Nr. 54781/16

Zeichn. Nr. 88.152-121

Typ. u. Grp. Ju88 A-4




This was one of the data plates found in the famous RAF Kenley dig back in the 1980’s.  Inscribed on the back is “Fuselage L1 + LR”, which was added BEFORE this tag was tossed at Kenley, as the corrosion is over top.  Thus proving without a doubt the EXACT aircraft it came from!  I have shown a similar Ju88 from the same unit in the last photo. A VERY RARE item which would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!


Ju 88 A-4 W. Nr.3275 of 7./LG 1, coded L1+LR was lost on 15 February 1941, due to combat with Hurricanes over Bengasi.   Ltn. Wilhelm Grotz , Fw. Erwin Rink,  and  Uffz. Karl Schauer all became POW.  However Uffz. Walter Tiede was KIA.

——————- ABOUT ME —————–

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
