A Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber by Wilhelm Hobacher of Wien. 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 silver class was presented to tank commanders, gunners or radio operators who went into battle in armored vehicles. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been silver washed. The oval shaped obverse depicts a 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 shows the correct; soldered on nickel silver round wire catch, soldered on nickel silver block hinge and nickel silver round wire pin. 20%+ of the silver wash remain intact. Nice details. It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 11/16 inches wide.
