Panzer Assault Badge in Silver, Help Confirming Maker BH Mayer

Recommended Posts

Hello again fellows,
I've been picking up a few items recently and finally had some time to post some things on the site again. Here I have what I have deduced to be an unmarked B.H. Mayer stamped PAB in silver. I was doing some amateur identification and from what I could tell this is an original Mayer PAB with some period? repairs to the pin assembly, as well as a bent catch. A well worn mid to late war zinc example I would say. If anyone else can confirm the maker or correct me if I'm off that would be excellent.
Here's the pics,
Cheers, Pat

Here is a nice shot of the eagle, typical BH Mayer I believe. A side shot as well.

Right on, I am getting better at ID'ing the makers. When I first started on the site back in 2006 I had so many fakes in my early collection that I learned a harsh lesson in looking at the details, not the dealer's story. It's thanks to this site and all the great help that I am now learning more and more about different designs and makers etc. in this exciting and sometimes heartbreaking hobby.

About the zinc pest, how much vasoline should I add? Maybe apply a small amount to a cotton swab and apply that way?

Thanks again,

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
