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. Most of the wash is lost to time. 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 semi-hollow back reverse displays a crimped steel sheet metal hinge, a crimped steel round wire catch and sturdy round wire buntmetall pin. They all remain in well working condition. The details and silver wash continue to display well! It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. Nice!
