The General Assault Badge (Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen) was awarded to Army, Waffen-SS and Ordnungspolizei personnel who supported an infantry attack in three separate assaults but did not qualify for the Infantry Assault Badge. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been silver washed with about 40% of the finish remaining. The obverse depicts a closed winged eagle, clutching a mobile swastika within its talons, above a crossed model 24 grenade and K98 bayonet. This is then all surrounded by an oak leaf and acorn wreath. The full back reverse is maker marked "R.S." (Rudolf Souval, Wien). It also shows a soldered on round plate round wire catch, soldered on sheet metal hinge and round wire pin. It retains great detai. See page 156 of "German Awards of WWII" by Heukemes. Very nice!
