Original Item: Only One Available. These awards are nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find on the market. This is a very nice example of a German WWII Silver Grade Bandenkampfabzeichen, or Bandit-warfare Badge. This is a rare World War II decoration, awarded to members of the Army, Luftwaffe, Order Police, and Waffen-SS for participating in rear-area security operations, known as Bandenbekämpfung (bandit fighting). The badge was instituted on 30 January 1944 by Adolf AH after authorization/recommendation by Heinrich Himmler. The war was not going well by this point, and resistance movements had become much more active, especially on the Eastern Front.
