Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen. Instititued June 1, 1940, 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 features a crimped/soldered-on sheet metal hinge, glued-on round wire catch (likely post-war) and round wire pin. All of the components remain in well working condition. It measures 2 1/16 inches tall by 11/16 inches wide.
