You are bidding on a VERY RARE example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Junkers Flugzeugwerke Werksmarke (Factory Worker’s Badge)! Hung around the wearer’s neck, this was used for identification purposes while constructing various aircraft and jet engines!
Junkers Flugzeug- und Motorenwerke AG (JFM, earlier JCO or JKO in World War I), more commonly Junkers, was a major German aircraft and aircraft engine manufacturer. It produced some of the world’s most innovative and best-known airplanes over the course of its fifty-plus year history in Dessau, Germany. It was founded there in 1895 by Hugo Junkers, initially manufacturing boilers and radiators. During World War I, and following the war, the company became famous for its pioneering all-metal aircraft. During World War II the company produced some of the most successful Luftwaffe planes, as well as piston and jet aircraft engines, albeit in the absence of its founder, who had been removed by the Nazis in 1934.
This factory produced the Junkers Ju87, Ju88, Ju188, Ju388, Ju52, W34, Ju90, Ju290, Ju390…as well as NUMEROUS engines, including the Jumo 211, Jumo 213, Jumo 004 Turbo Jet!
Made of ALUMINUM, this Factory Labour Badge is in SUPERB used condition. EASILY the NICEST I have ever seen, all markings are clear to read, with NO corrosion or damage! With the individual employee number and a prominent Junkers Logo in the center, the markings indicate:
(Junkers Flugzeug Motorenwerk
This is the ONLY one I have seen in ALUMINUM (most were made of Zinc), and as such, retains most of it’s original finish! Measuring approx. 1.5″ in diameter, it would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- 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.
