Silver Infantry Assault Badge

A nice unmarked one here by an unidentified maker to date. There is some evidence assigning this to Hermann Wernstein or Petz & Lorenz, regardless Weber calls it Unknown Maker 7.43 on pg 196 of his IAB reference. 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 is unmarked it sports a soldered block hinge, a soldered tombac catch and sturdy round wire pin that has several bends. They are all non-magnetic and in well working condition. This has age and finish loss. It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. See page 196 of Sascha Weber's "The Infantry Assault Badges". Very nice!
