Acquired a group lot medals and badges in auction to nab a medal I wanted. Third Reich is not my area of collection so I need opinions and value estimates to list this badge and document for sale. The badge was paired with this document. Opinions?

Hello Markus

The infantry Assault Badge is attributed to the maker Friedrich Linden, Lüdenscheid. This hollow is one of two zinc based hollows in the FLL line of IAB's.

It is also considered the later of the two hollow zinc examples; progression has been determined by the hardware used on this IAB.

In looking at the catch, it was specifically made for a zinc solid having a hole for a type of "rivet / crimp" attachment method.

One can see this catch was designed for a solid and not this hollow. Because of this, the argument can be made that this hollow must have followed the solid zinc examples using this hardware.

Here is a solid I have to compare.

The IAB Doc is the most commonly encountered but it has nice stamps and is in good condition.

Best Regards, fischer

    • 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.
