Here’s one by Frank & Reif! The Panzer Assault Badge was awarded to those who had either; taken part in three armored assaults in three different days, had been wounded in the course of an assault or who had earned a bravery decoration in the course of an assault. The Bronze class was for the Panzergrenadier regiments, tank assault crew, armored reconnaissance units who went into battle in armored vehicles. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been bronze plated and lacquered. The obverse depicts a panzer tank, above a grass field, which is beneath a national closed winged eagle clutching a mobile swastika in its talons and is all surrounded by an oval oak leaf wreath that is tied together at the bottom. The semi-hollow reverse is correctly maker marked: “Frank & Reif Stuttgart”. It also shows the correct steel soldered oval sheet metal hinge, steel soldered round plate round wire catch and steel round wire pin. It measures approximately 2 3/8 inches tall by 1 5/8 inches wide. The very top of the eagle's head is lost to zinc-pest other than that it retains a good look. See page 448 of Philippe de Bock’s “The German Panzer Assault Badge of World War II”. A good piece.
