An Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen Mitgliednadel. The stickpin lapel variation would be privately purchased for everyday wear. 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 stamped 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 has a soldered on knurled stickpin. The face measures ½ inch wide by 5/8’s tall. The finish is beautiful.
