An Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen by F. W. Assmann & Söhne of Lüdenscheid. The General Assault Badge 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. 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 semi-hollow back reverse is maker marked “A” (F. W. Assmann & Sohne, Lüdenscheid) and displays a soldered on nickel-silver sheet metal hinge and a soldered on round wire catch and round wire pin. All of the components are non-magnetic and continue to work well. It measures approximately 1 5/8 inches wide by 2 1/8 inches tall. A nice one.
