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 ZINC, this Factory Labor Badge is in GOOD relic condition. Found at the factory remains, some of the markings had faded…but it should clean-up quite well. Features individual employee number and “Junkers Flugzeugwerk”Measuring approx. 1.5” in diameter, it would make a NICE addition to any collection or display!
Please note that as I have multiple quantities, the specific badge shown is just an example of the overall condition of the badges. The one you receive may not look like the example depicted. You are bidding on ONE badge, not the entire lot shown in the first photo.
