World War II-era aluminum and red enamel worker's access badge for the Peenemunde Army Research Center, measuring approximately 1.5 x 1.75, marked as number "361," with text around the perimeter, "Heeresversuchsstelle, Peenemunde." A German eagle and swastika are depicted at the bottom. Displayed in a small metal frame. In very good to fine condition, with general wear. Peenemunde was the secret German rocket base run by Wernher von Braun where the V-2 was developed, produced, and tested during WWII. After the war, von Braun and a hundred of his key V-2 personnel emigrated to the United States in Operation Paperclip, where their knowledge was leveraged in the development of the Redstone missile. Access badges for the Peenemunde Army Research Center in such well-preserved condition are quite scarce and highly desirable. From The Bill Lende Collection.
