'Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen'


General Assault Badge (Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen). The General Assault badge was introduced on 1 June 1940 by 'Generaloberst Walther von Brauchitsch' for award to support personnel who were ineligible for the Infantry or Panzer Assault badges. Criteria for award of the badge was basically the same as the criteria for award of the Infantry and Panzer Assault badges with the main qualification being participation in three separate assaults in a supporting role. The hollow type badge is executed in 'Zink' with most of it's original silverish finish remaining. The badge is complete with a functional pin and catch. The badge is not visible maker marked but can very likely be attributed to the company of 'Wilhelm Deumer' from Lüdenscheid. Example with stunning details and great finish, nice original example!
