A Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze by Emil Ferdinand Wiedmann of Frankfurt am Main. 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 bronze class was presented to the Panzergrenadier regiments, tank assault crew, armored reconnaissance units, and medical personnel who went into battle in armored vehicles. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been bronze 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 semi-hollow reverse is correctly maker marked: “W” (E. Ferdinand Wiedmann, Frankfurt). It also features the correct steel soldered on sheet metal hinge, tombak soldered on round plate round wire catch and tombak round wire pin. All of the components continue to work well. It measures approximately 2 3/8 inches tall by 1 5/8 inches wide. A great looking piece!
