German General Assault Badges For Sale

only search thirdreichmedals.com


(CS1085) A General Assault Badge maker marked "W" to the left hand side of the hinge. The award has been manufactured from grey zinc that has then had an aluminium finish applied. This is the first one I have had of these that has not been silver plated. In very nice condition, the badge shows some minor tarnish marks. This manufacturer some people have put down to the firm of Wurster and as such, is a known textbook style. The badge was traded at the end of the war by a British serviceman who was an RAF Pilot Officer. GBP 150.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1327) A General Assault Badge being of pressed zinc metal with a silver plating. The badge is unusual in the fact that the eagle and swastika are cut out. The award is the only known type to have this feature and is a textbook example, with the later fittings. The hook has had a repair/replacement The silver plated finish is approximately 5% intact as can be seen from the scan, with oxidisation being present also. Very hard General Assault badge to find, this is one of the hardest variations of the unnumbered type to acquire. Priced for condition GBP 250.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS1330) A used and worn General Assault Badge. The badge is a grey zinc example that appears to be slightly bronzed. It may well be that this is how the silver toned colour has gone. The award is complete wtih its pin, hinge and hook and as far as I can see, it is an unmarked example. In good overall condition. GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC768) A Nice General Assault Badge in Silver Plated Zinc, being the type with the ball hinge and hook. This is often stated to be by the maker RK, though I have never seen any documentation to back this up. The conclusion is drawn on the maker marked Panzer badges that use these types of fittings. This example though, has a nice burnished swastika and retains much of the original silver plated finish, although it has oxidised over the years. The award has a nice working pin, hing and hook, with the hinge being a ball type and both the hinge and hook are countersunk into the back of the badge. There are no maker marks that I can see, but this type of badge is well known in the collecting community and as such, is textbook. Very nice condition. GBP 150.00 (UK Pounds)

(MC769) A nice and scarcely encountered bronze General Assault Badge by the maker A for Assmann. This example comes from the second die and is marked No. 2 under the A. The badge is a classic Assmann cast in hinge and hook type showing the 6 die ejector marks to the wreath and the bronze finish on this example is about 95% intact and is an olive bronze and not a toning. Very rare to find. GBP 375.00 (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!
SORRY I AM SOLD

(CS805) A General Assault Badge by the firm of JFS being a Number 25 version. We originally owned this badge over 10 years ago when it was part of the 8th Army Gibson Hall of items picked up by a British soldier and then sold off by his family. This was one of the items. The badge is a classic example with all the features of a known original including the slightly unusual stamping of the trade mark. An identical one is shown in the book by "Frank Heukemes" entitled "The General Assault Badge", shown on page 324-325. A badge that cannot be upgraded! SORRY I AM SOLD
