This is a high-quality reproduction piece of a Combined Pilot-Observer badge.  In May 1938, during Hitler's state visit to Italy, Goering made Mussolini, a qualified pilot, a gift of this badge in a special version with diamonds.  In October 139, Goering made this a status of official decoration.  Only a small number of very distinguished persons received this rare decoration.   The badge usually was worn on the left breast pocket above the Iron Cross.
