(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)

(CS1113) A Nice example of an Earlier Bronze Infantry Assault Badge. The badge is slightly convexed and retains virtually all of its original bronze finish. The award is an unmarked example, but of good quality. Scarce to find such a nice example. GBP 175.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS885) A Very Nice example of a Bronze Infantry Badge by the maker FLL. The badge retains most of its original bronze finish. This is the type that has both the hinge and the hook soldered to the reverse. There is some oxidisation to the badge as can be seen from the scan but this is nothing serious. Scarce to find such a nice early bronze grade in such good condition, with the added bonus of a nice maker. 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)

(R271) A Superb Bronze Infantry Assault Badge in its Paper Packet of Issue. The badge is a textbook JFS example with a silver pin and a countersunk hinge and hook. The JFS mark which is in raised letters within a box, is just below the countersunk hinge. The badge retains virtually all of its original bronzed finish with only marginal wear and tear.The badge comes with its original paper packet of issue which is also in near mint condition. The badge still has its original tissue wrappings. I believe the badge was one of those found approximately 5 years ago, still in their packets. A superb example not often encountered, especially such a complete set in lovely condition that won't disappoint. GBP 350.00 (UK Pounds)
