The bronze grade Anti-Partisan Badge by C. E. Juncker! please note it is the stand that makes the badge look like it has a notch out of it. The badge was awarded to the Army, Luftwaffe and SS for service against partisan activity behind German lines. It is constructed out of a die struck, zinc-alloy base that has been silver washed. The obverse features; a centrally placed downward pointing broad sword, that has a sun wheel swastika to the round crossguard and is plunged into a Hydra consisting of five serpents and a skull and crossbones. There is a half oak leaf and acorn wreath to the top. There are two cut-outs in the snakes to the obverse. The reverse shows a semi-hollow scooped back with the correct barrel hinge, flat wire catch and round wire pin. There is minor oxidization wear throughout. It continues to hold beautiful detail and about 90% of the silver wash! Similar example can be seen in Antonio Scapini's excellent and recommended reference pg 82. Categorized as type 2.2 Available here A rare badge! Finally if any of you have any authenticity concerns over this one I was talking with Antonio Scapini's excellent reference and I will be happy to supply a COA from him for this for $50.
