Here's a great example of a silver IAB by Adolf Scholze! The oval shaped badge is constructed out of a die struck, zinc-alloy base that has been silver washed. The obverse depicts a rifle and bayonet below a Heer closed winged eagle clutching a mobile swastika within its talons. This is all surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The reverse of the badge displays a semi-full back and is clearly "A.S." (Adolf Scholze, Grünwald a. N.) maker marked It has the textbook crimped ball hinge, crimped flat catch and sturdy round wire pin! They all remain in well working condition and are non-magnetic. It measures approximately 2 ½ inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. See page 70 of "The Infantry Assault Badge" by Weber. It shows age spotting throughout the obverse. There is a small crack that is only obvious to the back. The details to this piece are wonderful!
