Unissued - Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Bronze by Sohni, Heubach & Co. of Idar-Oberstein. 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 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 full back reverse is correctly maker marked “S.H.u. Co.” and correctly displays a soldered on sheet metal hinge, soldered on oval plate round wire catch and a round wire pin. They all remain in well working condition. The finish has been absorbed by the zinc, so it could be silver. It comes in its original issue tissue paper. It measures approximately 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. Nice!
