Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen - 'Wurster'


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 badge is executed in 'Zink' and still retains almost all of its original silverish finish showing stunning details. The badge is complete with a functional pin and catch. The badge is nicely maker marked with a small 'W' logo which indicates production by the company of 'Karl Wurster' from Markneukirchen. Nice original example in very good condition!
