Original Items: Only One Available. Called in German a Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber, this genuine badge is constructed of silvered stamped zinc alloy, making this a desirable “Hollow Back” version. On this example, as with most, the silvering is almost completely gone, and the entire badge now has a slate gray oxidized zinc patina.
The design consists of an oval oak wreath tied together at the base via a ribbon, with a national eagle clutching a mobile swas, with a vertically oriented Karabiner 98k with the bayonet attached to the front of the barrel and the carrying sling hanging from the rifle superimposed on the wreath. The back features a vertical pinback, an attached folded hinge, and a soldered bent catch. It measures approximately 48 mm (w) x 63 mm (h), and is in very good condition.
This badge does not bear any maker marks, however it looks to be me made in the style of S.H.u.Co., or Sohni, Heubach & Co of Idar-Oberstein a.d. Nahe, Germany. It has the correct Five Veins in the oak leaves and a bent sheet metal hinge. The bent wire c catch is also the correct style.
Overall a great example of this type of badge, ready to display!
