  1. "AS" (Adolf Scholze) has a particular reverse setup....this badge does not have it. Going on the pic's supplied, and the fact that the details look to be soft, I would go for it being a cast copy (fake). The case, IMO, has been made to give the badge/story a little more credence. Have a look at the original example of a Panzer Assault Badge by "AS" posted below.
  2. DKiG Help

    This looks like an early 1st pattern DKiG from the maker Deschler & Sohn. The hinge plate and catch look to be somewhat different from others I've seen, but that having been said it would seem that there are slight differences in the reverse setup, on this type of cross, that are accepted as original. Let us hope that the more experienced DKiG collectors out there will be able to give a better assessment. If it turns out to be an original 1st pattern 10 rivet Deschler & Sohn then you have an extremely rare piece.
  3. It looks to be a very nice early example by the maker Förster & Barth- Pforzheim.
  4. ....and is the version in zinc.
  5. The only three rivet GAB's are by the makers MUK.5 and Rudolf Karneth & Söhne, Gablonz This, I would say, is a fake.
  6. And there we leave it... as far as this forum is concerned, misterjerry asked a question which was answered.....the badge in question is a well known fake.
  7. Very nice, Jock Absolutely love these mini’s….
  8. No, sorry....fake Hymmen obverse design with a close FZS reverse...sneeky fakers
  9. ...for the white tunic, white mess jacket and the tropical brown and white tunic, attributed to Friedrich Linden, Ludenscheid.
  10. Believe me, my friend, all collectors have these early mistakes in a draw.
  11. All members of the Heer/SS who engaged in hand-to-hand combat when unsupported by Panzer would qualify for the CCC. Bronze:15 days Silver: 30 days Gold: 50 days. Going on the criteria, your Grandpa certainly earned his bar.
  12. Fake, IMO... all the signs of being a cast copy.
