Silber Panzerkampfabzeichen Mitgliednadel. The stickpin lapel variation would be privately purchased for everyday wear. 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 silver class was presented to tank commanders, gunners or radio operators who went into battle in armored vehicles. It is constructed out of a die struck zinc base that has been silver 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 full-back reverse features a crimped-on steel based knurled stickpin. It has the typical movement you would expect with it being crimped on. The face measures ½ inch wide by 11/16 of an inch tall.
