The Condor division was a German unit that half secretly fought in the Spanish Civil War between 1936-1940. It tested many of the weapons later on used in the Blitzkrieg campaigns between 1939-1941. The badge has some wear but in an excellent condition.
The badge passed very important black light test - it does not glow under a black light. All modern papers and fabrics are glow under a black light - please look at the screenshot.
