A Bronze Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen by Metal und Kunststoff of Gablonz! The Bronze Infantry Assault Badge was awarded to Motorized/Mechanized Infantry troops 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 bronze 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 sem-full back reverse of the badge is clearly maker marked “M.K.1.”. It also features the correct; crimped steel ball hinge, crimped steel catch and sturdy steel round wire pin. They all remain in well working condition and are non-magnetic. Minor cracking to the reverse. The details to the oak leaves and acorns are gorgeous. The bronze wash continue to display wonderfully! It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. See page 75 of Sascha Weber’s “The Infantry Assault Badges”. A great piece!
