The badge has a nice blocked hinge and hook soldered to the reverse and being of slate grey construction, it has absorbed all of its finish.

(P362) A mid to late war Panzer Badge in very good condition. The badge has a counter sunk hinge and hook into the reverse. The badge is unmarked, but of nice quality.
