An Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen by Gustav Brehmer of Markneukirchen. 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 full back reverse features a soldered on round plate round wire catch and a soldered sheet metal hinge and round wire pin. All remain in well working condition. The hinge broke off and was glued back together with some glue remnants remaining around the hinge. It measures approximately 2 1/16 inches tall by 11/16 inches wide. A fine piece at a fine price!
