MORE PICTURE & INFO
(S945) A Very Rare example of an Original Issue Spanish Condor Legion Tank Badge. The badge is a very nice, probably silver, striking and has a hinge and hook soldered to the reverse that are handmade, along with the pin, by a jeweller. The solder used is lead. This type of badge is shown in several of the reference works on the subject as the original issue, given in Spain. This is the first time we have had one of these rare awards for sale. We have occasionally had the German replacements. An example of this type is shown in the Niemann price guide book volume 3 on page 500 at the bottom. Only 415 of these rare awards were originally issued, though obviously more of the replacements were manufactured. When all is said and done, this wartime example is a very rare item to acquire. GBP 5500.00 (UK Pounds)

The badge is a mint mid war example, with all its original aluminium style of paint finish to it. A very nice variation tank badge to find. GBP 295.00 (UK Pounds)

(V1356) A German Tank Battle Badge for 25 Engagements being the silver grade, though this GB marked example has followed its usual course and absorbed most of its silver finish, giving both the tank and wreath a slate grey appearance. Though the numbered box being of quality metal is still nice clean and bright. On the reverse side are the two hollowed rivets for fixing the tank to the wreath, which is as the norm for these, split, and not the perfect round dome type you find on the German cross. The bottom number plate is also held by a rivet, which is of a nicer quality being brass. The pin, hinge and hook have the usual GB associated features, being a magnetic pin, which is nice and working with no snagging and a hook and hinge soldered with bright coloured solder to the reverse. This is the usual colour one would expect to have found the badge in wartime, a great sign of originality. The badge is slightly loose, which again is to be expected. This is a rare example now of a hard to find German war badge. GBP 2500.00 (UK Pounds)
