H075172 PANZER ASSAULT BADGE, BRONZE. (Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze)

BACKGROUND: The Panzer Assault badge in bronze was introduced by Generaloberst Walther von Brauchitsch on June 1ST 1940 for award to Panzer-Grenadier, medical, and armored car personnel who participated in three different armored assaults on three different days. The design of the badge was identical to the earlier instituted Panzer Assault Badge in silver for Panzer personnel except for the coloration.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Die struck alloy construction, partially scooped backed, Panzer Assault Badge with a bronze washed finish. The badge is in the form of a vertically oval oak-leaf wreath with a Wehrmacht style eagle with down-swept wings, superimpose to the top center, encompassing the cut-out, forward profile of a tank. The reverse of the badge has scooped depressions to the tank barrel and body. The reverse has a ball hinge inset into a rectangular recess with raised, crimped, outer retaining lips, a thin round vertical pin and a soldered catch on a circular base plate inset into a circular recess all intact. The reverse is well marked with the embossed manufacturers initials, "A. S.", indicating manufacture by Adolf Schloze of Grünwald.
