A Silber Panzerkampfabzeichen by F. W. Assmann & Söhne of Lüdenscheid. 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 stamped zinc base that has been silver washed. 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 hollow back reverse is correctly maker marked: “A” (F. W. Assmann & Söhne, Lüdenscheid). It also shows the correct; soldered on round wire catch, soldered on sheet metal hinge and round wire pin. It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 11/16 inches wide. Nice silver wash and detail. A beautiful piece!
