Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen in Silber by Hermann Aurich of Dresden. The Silver Infantry Assault Badge was awarded to foot infantrymen 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-alloy base that has been silver 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 clearly maker marked “HA” behind the swastika. It also has a textbook crimped round plate hinge, crimped round wire catch and sturdy steel round wire pin! They all remain in well working condition. Minor zinc pest. Nice detail. It measures 2 7/16 inches tall by 1 7/8 inches wide. A nice one!
