A nice silber Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen! The Silver Infantry Assault Badge was awarded to foot infantrymen who had taken part in combat action on different days and met the required award criteria. It is constructed out of a die struck, zinc-alloy base that has been silver washed. The oval shaped 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 acorn and oak leaf wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The full back reverse of the badge features a soldered on steel buntmetal sheet hinge, soldered on round plate round wire catch and sturdy buntmetall round wire pin. They all remain in well working condition and are non-magnetic. The details continue to display nicely. It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. I believe the make may be by Steinhauer & Lück, Lüdenscheid.
