German General Assault Badges For Sale

(CS884) A nice near mint condition early war General Assault Badge being the type often associated with the firm of RK. The badge retains virtually all of it's finish to the front and the reverse has a ball hinge and countersunk hook, all features associated with the maker RK. The badge however is an unmarked example and the hinge appears to have had a factory repair. Scarce to find in this condition. A very nice badge. The badge was part of a group of items picked up by a British Army Officer who was in command of a bren gun team who won the Military Cross. This is one of the last items he had. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC61) A Very Nice example of a 25 Numbered General Assault Badge by the maker RK and marked as such to the righthand 3 o clock position on the reverse. The badge is textbook in every way, with a nice clear maker's mark onto a plated zinc wreath that is slightly bubbling and oxidised. The eagle and bayonet and hand grenade are nicely riveted by 4 ball rivets to the wreath. The hinge and hook which are both magnetic are encompassed into the back of the wreath. To the front, the numbered box sits slightly low in the square, which isn't too far out of tolerance though. The eagle is a nice fit to the badge. A superb badge that matches all known originals by this maker. This was part of a group picked up by someone who was obviously in charge of de-nazification or had light fingers!
