General Assault Badge - 'Half Moon'


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 heavy quality badge is executed in 'Zink' with a fair amount of its original silverish finish remaining and having a nice copper undercoating. The badge is complete with a functional pin and catch. The badge is not visible maker marked, this badge is a so-called "Half Moon" variant, due to the half moon shaped pin plate. Desirable original example in good condition!
