Thanks to all for the interest and comments. I appreciate it. It is an interesting little area of collecting. Here is another of the Jump Certificates. I like it because it is in its original period frame and it includes a studio portrait of the man wearing his badge. He made 16 jumps. I would doubt that there are a dozen of these still existing today. I was in the right place at the right time when a large, long time Hungarian collection was sold and ended up with three of them. Will probably part with one at some point. They are huge 40 x 60 cm.

You have to give them credit, those are some really impressive wings!  Those certificates are pretty neat as well. Thank you for sharing.
