German Panzer Badge Silver by AS, fake ??

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 I found this PAB for sale yesterday, the seller says the badge is original made by Adolf Sholze, what do you think? There are copies everywhere, so I prefer to be sure about this one...

Hello. This does not look like any zinc panzer badge by A.S. im Dreieck that I have seen.  The attribution of A.S. im Dreieck to maker Adolf Scholze is not 100% established as far as many very experienced collectors are concerned.  So that is why I continue to refer to it as A.S. im Dreieck until there is complete agreement on the attribution by the experts.  Regards.

Thank you for your response. So, you are not sure if is fake or an original badge  ?

I'm starting to collect, so I don't know very much about it.

Hello.  I have placed your badge next to an authentic zinc panzer badge made by A.S. im Dreieck in the photo below.  My eyes are not as young as they once were, but I see several dissimilarities.  Please examine the photo very carefully paying close attention to the details.  What do you think?  Regards.

Yes, you are right, I also see a lot of differences, the 2nd looks more "sharp", thank you and good day.  Stojan. 


What we look for is not necessarily "Sharpness" of the details.  The stamping-dies wore down over time as the badges were stamped-out, so we expect to see some reduction in sharpness.  What we compare is the actual design... windows, treads, wheels, grass, oak-leaves, eagle feathers, and so forth.  Regards.

    • 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.
