Established in February 1940, the Ehrenpokal was awarded b y the authority of Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering to Luftwaffe personnel for “Special Achievement in the Air War”. The design is based on the WW1 Goblet, and was crafted by the Joh. Wagner & Sohn, Berlin, which was the sole manufacture. This award was between the 1st Class Iron Cross and the German Cross in Gold or Knight’s Cross. Early variants were made of .835 Silver, and later model (around 1942) were made out of “Alpaka”.
Flugzeugfuhrer Oberleutnant Wilhelm Fuller wa a pilot with 3./NAG102 (Nahaufklärungsgeschwader 102), which was a Reconnaissance Squadron. He was killed on December 20, 1943, in his Me109 G6 (W.Nr. 15631), which suffered from mechanical/operational failure over Juterbog-Damm.
Made of Alpaka, this Goblet is an AMAZING one of a kind item! It features an image of Two Eagles in combat on one side; and an Iron Cross on the other. It is clearly engraved with the date of presentation; his name and rank of Leutnant (which he was at the time). It has some very slight wear, but is in otherwise EXCELLENT condition for it’s age! Stamped on the bottom. Comes complete with a photocopy of his death certificate (with photo). Would make a PERFECT item for any collection or display!
