Army or Heer Panzer Tank Assault Badge for 25 Engagements.
This higher grade of the Tank Assault badge was instituted in June 1943. It was awarded to qualifying personel of the Army or Heer and Waffen S.S. for participation in 25 separate combat engagements. This is quite the nicest example of this rare award that we have offered. Die struck in 3 pieces just like the original. The tank has the correct darkened finish and is neatly rivetted onto the silver wreath. The gilt and black numbered plaque, also a separate piece, is affixed to the bottom of the badge. Complete with the correct flat style pin. With maker's mark 'JFS' of Josef Feix & Sohne.
A very nice heavy and high quality example.
The WWII German military Wehrmacht combat badges and breast awards offered by the Regalia Specialist are made to the most exacting standards whilst still providing excellent value for money. Where possible original Third Reich period tools and dies obtained from Germany in the 1980's are used and traditional European manufacturing techniques are employed. We believe that that small touches like authentic pin fixings and original style finishes will enhance the enjoyment of these items and these litte extras are offered wherever possible.
