Here we have a Heeres-Flak Abzeichen by Rudolf Souval! The Heer flak badge was awarded for proven participation in several (16 points) successful actions against aerial targets. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc-alloy base that has been silvered washed and black burnished and lacquer finished. The oval shaped obverse depicts an anti-aircraft gun that is surrounded by a laurel leaf wreath and is below a Heer eagle, clutching a mobile swastika in its talons. The full back reverse shows a raised “R.S.” (Rudolf Souval, Wien) maker mark along with a soldered on steel sheet metal hinge (with a raise mounting area), a soldered on round plate round wire variant catch and a round wire pin. The hinge, pin and catch show minor oxidization and are all in well working condition. It measures approximately 2 3/8 inches tall by 1 ¾ inches wide. See pages 314-321 of M. Garlasco’s “The Flak Badges”. A nice one!
