(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)
