(CS351) A Silver Infantry Assault Badge being a mid to late war example with the hinge and hook counter sunk into the reverse of the badge. The badge has turned a slate grey and lost virtually all of its original silvered finish. The badge has not been put down to any specific maker although this style is often encountered.
GBP £85.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS643) An Infantry Assault Badge in its Gasolene Packet of Issue. The badge is in virtually mint but oxidised condition and shows the lacquer has peeled off in places. The badge is maker marked L/61 and has its hinge and hook riveted into the back of the badge by a single rivet. This is a nice textbook example of an FLL assault badge. Scarce to find especially with this packet, which is also LDO marked. GBP £175.00 (UK Pounds)

(K1426) A Very Nice example of a Hollow backed Infantry Assault badge being nicely convexed. The badge has a nice pin, hinge and hook soldered directly to the zinc sheet metal and the hinge is a nice covered wagon style. The badge is of very nice quality, construction and detailing. A nice variation for the infantry assault badge collector. GBP £99.00 (UK Pounds)

(M819) An Infantry Assault Badge being an unmarked type put down to the manufacturer SHuCO41. The badge has the unusual variation of the hinge and hook countersunk into the back of the badge, with the unusual hinge being accommodated by the cut out. The badge is an earlier silver plated type over base zinc. This has bubbled and aged as can be seen from the scan, but the badge still has a nice pleasing appearance. A nice unusual variant to acquire. Scarce to find. This came from a German house clearance agent.

GBP £150.00 (UK Pounds)

(M820) An Infantry Assault Badge being the type with what is often referred to as, the pillow crimped fittings. This is where the hook and hinge are both encompassed on all four sides by a rectangle metal. The badge is of mid war construction with an aluminium style of finish over base zinc. This is still intact for the most part. The badge retains a high percentage of its finish as can be seen from the scan. A nice unusual variation to acquire. This came from a German house clearance agent. GBP £150.00 (UK Pounds)

(M822) An Infantry Assault Badge being the type with a semi-scooped rifle often put down to the firm of Steinhauer & Luck, although this has never been confirmed. The badge is of nice quality and construction and is of base zinc. The reverse still retains most of its original aluminium paint finish whereas the front, it is only visible on the lower portions of the badge. Very nice variation, the badge is of good quality and construction.

GBP £99.00 (UK Pounds)

(N670) A Nice Early Infantry Assault Badge. The badge is the type that is heavily plated with copper before being silver plated. This copper has worn through in places, but it hasn't deteriorated the badge's looks. The badge is the type belived by some to be manufactured by the Deschler firm and is of fine quality, construction and detail with particular care taken to the eagle. A nice variation that is accepted in the majore textbooks as a Deschler. This was recently purchased from a German house clearing agent.

GBP £150.00 (UK Pounds)

(P625) A Silver Infantry Assault Badge in pressed metal. The award is a late war zinc Silver plated example that retains much of its original silver plated finish. The award is complete with its original pin, hinge and hook fixing and has no maker's marks I can see. Nice condition. GBP £125.00 (UK Pounds)
