Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen by Wilhelm Deumer of Lüdenscheid. Instituted 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 or Panzer Assault Badge. It is constructed out of a die struck 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 fullback reverse features a soldered-on block hinge, soldered-on round plate c-shaped catch and round wire pin. All of the components remain in well working condition. Minor zinc pest. Nice silvering remains. It measures 2 1/16 inches tall by 11/16 inches wide. A desirable maker.
