Luftwaffe Honor Goblet
A Ehrenpokal der Luftwaffe by Johann Wagner & Sohn of Berlin. Full Disclosure: In my opinion the name of the original recipient’s name has been taken off and Gloinski’s name has been added. The goblet is completely original. Introduced February 27th 1940, the Luftwaffe Honor Goblet was awarded to Luftwaffe aircrew personnel “For Special Achievement in the Air War”. It is constructed out of a three pieces of die stamped Alpaka finesilver. The cup portion features; an octagonal image of two fighting eagles above a mountain scene, to the obverse, and a 1st Class Iron Cross, to the reverse, all above a hammer background. The stem displays a bordered oak leaf and acorn design aboves “Unteroffizier Heinz Golinski”. The base reads: “Für Besondere Leistung Im Luftkrieg” (For Special Achievement in the Air War). The underside reads: “Feinsilber Alpaka Auflage Joh. Wagner & Sohn”. It measures 8 1/8 inches tall by 3 7/8 inches in diameter. It has beautifully patinaed with time..
